Effective May 1, 2024, filers will have the ability to request Certified Copies of the Probate Letters they are filing into a case via the e-filing system for decedent, guardianship and conservatorship matters.

When filing into the existing case, filers will still select the appropriate document type and upload that document in Section 2 of the filing (Letter A). They will then select Certified Copy Fee $40.00 from the Optional Services drop down in Section 3 (Letter B).
