    Description:
    The Probate Court is operated in accordance with the General Statutes of the State of Connecticut. The court has jurisdiction over the probate of wills and administration of estates of deceased persons in the towns of Tolland, Coventry, Mansfield and Willington. Adoptions, parental rights matters, guardianship, conservatorship, trust estates, commitments, marriage waivers, name changes, and passports are all within the province of the Probate Court. Residents of Tolland, Coventry, Mansfield and Willington elect the Judge of Probate for a four-year term. The towns, by statute, must support the court by providing office space and paying for office expenses. The expenses of the court are shared between the towns.  The ratio is based on population.

    Mission:
    It is the function of the court to supervise the payment of funeral expenses, taxes, and debts owed by the decedent, and to assure that any property remaining is properly distributed to the persons entitled to it. It is also the function of the court to make the proper determination concerning other matters within its jurisdiction and maintain all files, updating their status annually.

    Passports:
    The Probate Court will no longer be processing passports effective January 1, 2015.  Passports can be processed at the Rockville Post Office or at the Storrs Post Office.
