Georgia Probate Courts exercise exclusive, original jurisdiction in the probate of wills, administration of estates, appointment of guardians (minor and adult) and involuntary hospitalization of incapacitated adults and other individuals.

Mission Statement:

The Probate Court will serve the general public and the citizens of Toombs County with integrity, respect, compassion and professionalism. We will work effectively as a team to ensure the highest standard of service within our office.

We will be happy to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have about the services of this office or the procedure you must follow for a particular process.  Please be advised, however, the state law prohibits our staff from rendering legal advice, restating the law or recommending specific ways to pursue legal action. It is never our intent to seem unhelpful or uncooperative. If you’re having difficulties interpreting the law, we suggest you contact an attorney licensed in the State of Georgia or you may visit for additional information.
