Welcome to NCPJ

Welcome to the National College of Probate Judges

The National College of Probate Judges (“NCPJ”), organized in 1968, is the only national organization exclusively dedicated to improving probate law and probate courts.

“Probate jurisdiction” varies from state to state. However, probate courts handle cases involving:

  • the estates of deceased persons
  • adult guardianship
  • protective proceedings
  • mental health
  • addictive disease treatment
  • matters concerning developmentally disabled persons

In some states, probate courts handle adoptions, certain juvenile matters, and/or guardianship and conservatorship of minors.
