Court Costs

As Judge of the Probate Court, I serve as both Judge and Clerk of the Court. In this dual capacity, my staff and I are committed to administer justice with fairness, quality, and integrity; to timely resolve matters before the Court; and to provide courteous and prompt service in a manner that inspires public trust and confidence.

I, and the rest of the Clark County Probate Court staff hope you find our website helpful and your experience with our Court satisfactory.

Important Notice

Legal practice in the Probate Court is restricted by law to attorneys who are licensed by the Supreme Court of Ohio. Due to the complexity of the law and the desire to avoid costly errors, most individuals who have filings before the Court are represented by an attorney. Court employees are prohibited by statue from practicing law and cannot give legal advice.
