We live in a society where we can access information from our very own house. With modern technology, we are able to acquire desired information with a simple search on Google, Bing or other search engines. For probate court cases however, you will need more than just a search engine. Rather than traveling to the court to access court records, the Oakland County Probate Court has a page where you can search for probate court cases through the Oakland County Probate Court Case Search system.

We’ve put together a set of instructions on how to use the probate court Case Search. Darren Findling of The Probate Pro explains the simple steps in the video below.

How to use the Oakland County Probate Court case search page

  1. Read and review the disclaimer. If everything is okay for you, click “I AGREE” at the bottom of the page to advance to the terms of service.
  2. Read and review the terms of service. If everything is okay for you, confirm you are not a robot by checking the box above the “Continue” button and then clicking the “Continue” button, which will advance you to the search page.
  3. On the search page, enter a phrase or keyword to begin your search. Examples of searches can be decedent names, case types, the specific case ID, names of interested parties and personal representatives.
  4. On the left hand side, you can narrow searches down to case status (“Open/Pending,” “Adjudicated/Disposed” and “Closed”), case type (in this case, “Probate”) and date of filing.
  5. Clicking on a case ID will bring up a page with all information relevant to the case itself, including the names of interested parties, the personal representatives and the next scheduled hearing.

If you have any questions on how to use the search page, or have any questions related to probate estates and trusts give us a call today.
