Welcome to the Miami County Probate Court website. We hope that you will find this website helpful in conducting business at Probate Court. Miami County Probate Court is a division of the Court of Common Pleas and has exclusive jurisdiction over certain types of cases including estates, guardianships (adults and minors), name changes (adults and minors), adoptions and civil commitments. The probate court also issues marriage licenses.
We have designed our website to give you some basic information about our services and access to some of our public records. We also have provided you with access to many of the forms used in Probate Court. We encourage you to use them, however, please be aware that the staff of the Probate Court is prevented by law from practicing law, and are, therefore, limited in the amount of advice that they are permitted to give.
Our staff is dedicated to serving you and will try to make your business before the court as pleasant as possible.
