Connecticut's Probate Courts are built on a 300-year-old foundation of commitment to service, integrity, and the rule of law. Today, in addition to their traditional role of overseeing decedents' estates and trusts, the Probate Courts handle a wide range of sensitive issues affecting children, the elderly, persons with intellectual disability, and individuals with psychiatric disabilities. In carrying out their responsibilities, the Probate Courts strive to protect the rights of individuals while affording those involved in probate matters an approachable and consumer-friendly environment.
