We Are Closed On Weekends & State Holidays - HOLIDAY SCHEDULE

It is the aim of the Register and his staff to deliver superior service and individual attention to every client visiting our office. For that reason, appointments are necessary for all new estate proceedings. Please call our office to schedule a meeting with one of our deputies. We will help you to determine what documents you will need to bring with you when you visit.
Typically, your initial appointment will run about an hour. During that meeting, the deputy will review the estate process with you, prepare the necessary documents, and review with you any additional documents that may subsequently be needed.
We understand this can be a difficult time and our caring staff is available to help you navigate through the estate process.
