The Register in Probate assists in all estate proceedings. It is the duty of the Register in Probate to maintain all papers properly filed, keep a court record of every proceeding and review all court documents for approval.  The court record is a complete index or brief history of each proceeding from the beginning to final disposition.  The Register in Probate records all documents and proceedings of the court and keeps a record, in full, of all wills admitted to probate and those filed for safekeeping, as well as all letters issued and all judgments rendered.  Proceedings administered by the Probate Office also include guardianship of minor and incompetents and the accounting thereof, and the supervision of monies invested for trusts and minor guardianships.

The Probate Registrar handles the administration of all informal probate proceedings.  The Probate Registrar advises as to the preparation of documents, but may not give legal advice to the personal representative.
