Avon Probate Court Has Moved (please read below)

In 2009, the Connecticut General Assembly passed Public Act 09-1, which reduced the number of probate courts in the state from 177 to 54, effective January 4, 2011.  Here in the Farmington Valley, the Avon, Canton, Simsbury, and Granby Probate Courts were consolidated into one court, the Simsbury Regional Probate Court.  The new court is located in the Simsbury Town Hall (933 Hopmeadow Street, Simsbury) and will be open during normal Town Hall business hours.  One judge presides over the court, and staff from the consolidating courts are continuing as employees of the new court.

The current probate procedures set forth in the General Statutes, as well as the fee structure for the Probate Courts, remains unchanged.  All of the Avon Probate Court's records are available at the Regional Court.

Sometimes the issues presented to the Probate Courts are complex and difficult. Therefore, it is important that you seek competent professional advice so that your legal rights are fully protected. The probate judge and staff will be happy to answer your procedural questions, but they are not allowed to give you specific legal advice.
