The Ohio Revised Code assigns over 620 separate duties to the Probate Court, ranging from issuing marriage licenses to overseeing administration of estates of all sizes.  Over the course of time most people who live in our County will have their lives impacted by our Court. The Williams County Probate Court has established a tradition of outstanding service to our community. My goal and that of our dedicated staff is to live up to that tradition with fairness, justice, and honor every day.
