Public comment on new revised Ohio probate forms

The Supreme Court of Ohio will accept public comment until July 21 on proposed new and revised probate court forms that concern adoptions, change of name proceedings and protecting incapacitated adults.

The new and revised forms:
  • Incorporate changes because of updates in adoption law.

  • Comply with case law and Civ. R. 4.4 for change of name proceedings.

  • Outline petition procedures for incapacitated adults.

Comments on the proposed amendments should be submitted in writing to: John VanNorman, Policy and Research Counsel, Supreme Court of Ohio, 65 S. Front St., Seventh Floor, Columbus, OH 43215, or john.vannorman@sc.ohio.gov.
