Standard Probate Forms

Currently there are approximately 118 Standard Probate Forms prescribed by the Supreme Court of Ohio. There are several non-standard probate forms published by the Shelby County Probate Court. In the sprit of the Ohio Probate Courts Page, editable Standard Probate Forms are provided in PDF format which allow any Ohio Probate Court to insert their county name. This will save thousands of hours that would be used if every court developed and maintained their own set of forms.

Note: Because some courts deviate from the Standard Probate Forms, you should check with the applicable court before submitting any forms from this page.
