On July 1, 2014, Probate Court was transferred from Franklin County General Sessions Court to Chancery Court. Changes have been made to the probate process. We hope these changes will make Probate more accessible and convenient to the Attorneys and families. The changes are as follows:
- Appointments will need to be made to probate an estate
- We will accommodate everyone by being very flexible with dates and times
- We will not make appointments on days Chancellor Stewart is holding Court
- An Information sheet is provided on this Website under “Probate Forms” to be completed and returned to us prior to your appointment. (This will avoid the need to prepare forms after you arrive)
Also, you must fax the Petition, Order and Will (if one) along with the information sheet. This will save time and assure that all documents are correct.
