Civil Proceedings refers to various types of litigation. Some examples of civil actions are land sale proceedings, actions to determine heirship, actions for presumption of death, actions for concealment of assets, will contests and will constructions. A civil action must be filed in the form of a complaint and must meet the requirements of the Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure. The Court does not provide forms for a civil complaint.
The Court has sample forms for persons seeking to disinter remains of a decedent and they are available in the Clerk's Office, Second floor, of the Montgomery County Courts Building.
If the decedent died of a contagious or infectious disease, the applicant must obtain a permit from the Board of Health (or other appropriate agency) authorizing the disinterment.
Current costs for disinterment, pages of recording, and filing an affidavit may be found on the Fees Page.
