Self-Help probate

Our Probate Self-Help pages help you handle property transfers at death, plan for estate management, and much more. Probate cases can be about:

  • children (like adoption and guardianship cases)
  • adults who can't represent themselves (conservatorship cases)
  • handling the estates of people who have died (property transfer)
  • planning for your old age and death (trusts and power of attorney)


Probate cases are heard in Downtown Superior Court in San Jose. See Probate cases online at the Case Information Portal .
