Courts of Probate

A court that administers the estates of persons who have died and the estates of persons who have, by legal process, been declared incompetent to manage their own properties such as insane persons, alcoholics or spendthrifts. In some states courts of Probate have limited civil and criminal authority in estate matters. They may be called orphans' courts or surrogate's courts.
