When someone has filed a petition to the probate court, they are asking for the court to do something. After the petition is filed, there’s a notice and hearing, which is followed by the court making a ruling. Once the court speaks, the ruling and direction taken going forward is put down on a form known as the Order form.

The Order form is a State Court Administrative Office form. If you need this, please reach out to us. We will gladly provide you with this form and any other probate court forms you may need. Most of these State Court Administrative Office forms are associated with Michigan Court Rules and statutes. This is no different. The Order form is associated with MCR 5.162, which states:

 (A) Form of Judgments and Orders. A proposed judgment or order must be prepared in accordance with MCR 2.602(A) and MCR 1.109(D)(2).

(B) Procedure for Entry of Judgments and Orders. In a contested matter, the procedure for entry of judgments and orders is as provided in MCR 2.602(B).

To help you understand this form better, Darren Findling of The Probate Pro covers everything you’ll need to know in this video.
