Connecticut’s Probate Courts are responsible for a broad range of cases involving children, seniors, persons with mental illness and adults with intellectual disability. The mission of the Probate Court system, given the sensitive nature of the matters that it handles, is to provide an approachable forum for families to resolve their cases in a fair, prompt and economical manner.
