Letters Testamentary, Letters of Administration, and Letters of Guardianship
Letters Testamentary are always original issuances from the Clerk; no copies are made. Only the executor, administrator, guardian or the attorney of record can receive Letters. Letters of Guardianship may be granted by the probate court after an application is filed and a guardian is qualified. Please consult your attorney for more information.
Filing an Oath
In order to qualify to be an executor, administrator, or guardian, a sworn Oath by a clerk or notary must be filed with the Probate Division after the order is granted. Oaths with an unsworn declaration may not be accepted.
Oaths may be filed in person by appointment or through e-filing. Electronic notary stamps and signatures will be accepted.
