Connecticut’s probate court system is built on a 300-year-old foundation of commitment to service, integrity, and the rule of law. Today, in addition to their traditional role of overseeing decedents’ estates and trusts, the probate courts handle a wide range of sensitive issues affecting children, the elderly, persons with intellectual disability, and individuals with psychiatric disabilities. In carrying out their responsibilities, the probate courts strive to protect the rights of individuals while affording those involved in probate matters an approachable and consumer-friendly environment.
Our goal in presenting this website is to continue the courts’ tradition of providing prompt, efficient service to Connecticut's citizens. The site includes a court finder with contact information about each court, materials explaining various aspects of probate law, and fillable forms that can be used in probate proceedings. I hope that you find this site to be a useful tool. -- Paul J. Knierim, Probate Court Administrator
