The Court resumed hearing all probate matters beginning June 17, 2020. The Court encourages the use of remote appearances at probate hearings using acceptable electronic platforms provided by the Court.
All probate hearings that were scheduled between March 18, 2020 through June 10, 2020 and reset due to the Court’s closure at that time remain eligible for use of the Emergency Agreement protocols set forth below. These protocols permit the court to rule on a filed petition without a hearing, but review is at the court’s discretion. If the court takes no action on the Emergency Agreement, the matter will remain on calendar for determination at the scheduled hearing.
