What is Probate Court?

Probate court is the one court that impacts everyone's life at some point. Not because they did anything illegal or improper, but because something tragic happened in their life; An elderly parent can no longer take care of themselves and a guardian must be appointed, a spouse passes away unexpectedly without a will, or a child is suffering from mental illness and the parents turn to the court for help. Because of the unique and heartbreaking circumstances that propel one to Probate Courts, a Judge must be TRUSTED. EMPATHIC. FAIR. That is my pledge to you.
