Probate Court is a division of the Court of Common Pleas and has jurisdiction over estates, guardianships, name changes, adoptions, civil commitments and marriage licenses. We are committed to providing a fair and impartial administration of justice, as well as prompt, courteous and efficient service to the public.
Sections have been designed to provide access to court rules, court forms, descriptions of areas of court services and links to other websites.
Legal practice in the Miami County Probate Court is restricted by law to attorneys who are licensed by the Supreme Court of Ohio. If an individual wishes to handle his or her own case, that person may do so, however, such person may not represent others. Due to the complexity of the law and the desire to avoid costly errors, most individuals who have matters before the Court are represented by an attorney.
