  • Effective 6/28/2021, the Macomb County Probate Court is scheduling in-person hearings. If the parties have already received their Zoom ID for a previously scheduled hearing, the Zoom hearing will still take place. However, should any/all of the attorneys, parties or witnesses wish to appear in person, they are welcome to do so, effective immediately.
  • The Probate Court is open to the public effective 6/23/2021.The Probate Court counter(cashier) will be open for accepting new filings only from 1:30 to 4:30 starting Monday 6/28. Under this procedure the Court cashier will accept the new filing by stamping it in and placing it in the pile of matters to be processed.  Deputy Registers will then process those matters in the same manner as we are doing currently (processing a stack of new filings by the date received). We are currently 4 weeks behind.  We will not be accepting filings and opening a file on the same date as the documents are provided to the Court. Deputy Registers will not be available to answer any questions at the time of the in-person filing  This procedure is being adopted to be fair to all those who are awaiting filings which have not yet been processed.If questions, please direct to Bob Szalka, Director of Legal Services, Macomb Probate Court.  Thank you!
  • Emergency filings must be filed by 3:00 pm. The public is asked to check our website at or call (586) 469-5290 with any questions. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this public health emergency.
