How to Start a Wayne County Probate Case

How to Complete Forms

  1. Fill out the forms.  These can be printed out from this website.  Fill them out (type them or use dark ink).  Forms are also available in Room 1307 of the Court.   

  2. Make sure your forms are completely filled out.
    • Did you sign all of them?
    • Are all the interested persons listed, along with their addresses, including zip codes?
    • You may wish to get a waiver and consent form signed by each interested person.  Except for guardianships, getting these forms may make it easier to start your case. 
    • If you need help filling out the form, contact an attorney.
