2. Where is the list for probate properties that are for sale?

There is no list. However, posting for upcoming petitions in the Central District can be found on the third floor business office in the viewing room.


3. Does the court provide a list of probated property?

The court does not provide such a list.


4. My case was taken off-calendar.  Do I have to file a new petition?

If the matter is taken off-calendar, you can request that the petition be reset by writing a letter and submitting it to the probate examiner assigned to your case. All defects except notice must be cleared prior to the matter being put back on calendar. If too much time has elapsed, you may need to file a new petition. Depending on the circumstances, re-notice, including re-publication, may be necessary.
