PLEASE SHARE THIS INFORMATION WITH YOUR CLIENTS IMMEDIATELY TO AVOID YOUR HEARING BEING ADJOURNED!

The Macomb County Probate and Circuit Courts are having difficulty with people connecting to Zoom with Apple products (IPad, IPhone, etc). AGAIN, THIS APPLIES ONLY TO APPLE PRODUCTS. Macomb County IT has recommended the following be done prior to your Zoom meeting:

  • The previous version of Zoom should be completely removed (uninstalled) from the Apple device.
  • The Apple device should be updated to the current version.
  • The Zoom app should be reinstalled.

This method has been used effective today and has rectified the problem. Once this done, the Apple product is able to connect with the court via Zoom.

AGAIN, THIS APPLIES TO THOSE USING APPLE PRODUCTS ONLY!


  • Emergency filings must be filed by 3:00 pm in-person only.  Those filed after 3:00 pm will be processed the next day.  The public is asked to check our website at probatecourt.macombgov.org or call (586) 469-5290 with any questions. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
