Probate Office

Our Purpose:
The Somerset County Probate Office oversees a spectrum of critical matters, including estates of deceased and missing persons, guardianship of both adults and minors, conservatorships, trusts, legal name changes, adoptions, and other vital family affairs. We understand the significance of these proceedings and are dedicated to facilitating them with care and diligence.

Our Services:

  • Estate Administration: Navigating the complexities of managing estates requires precision and expertise. Our team at the Probate Office is here to guide you through the process, ensuring the orderly and lawful distribution of assets.
  • Guardianship and Conservatorship: We play a pivotal role in ensuring the well-being of both adults and minors through guardianship and conservatorship proceedings. Our commitment is to uphold the highest standards of care and protection.
  • Legal Name Changes: Sometimes, a legal name change is necessary to reflect personal identity accurately. The Probate Office facilitates this process, recognizing the importance of individual self-expression.
  • Adoptions and Family Matters: Embracing new beginnings and supporting families in transition, we oversee adoptions and other family matters. Our goal is to provide a compassionate and understanding environment during these significant life events.
