Eighth Judicial Court Rules

Rule 4.50 – Contents of probate orders.

Rule 4.50. Contents of probate orders.

  • All orders or decrees in probate or trust matters shall set forth completely all matters actually passed on by the court and shall not merely refer to corresponding provisions of the petition. Probate or trust orders should be so drawn that their general effect may be determined without reference to the petition on which they are based. Orders must not be drawn so that only the signature of the court, or the date and signature, appear on a page, nor may any matter appear after the signature of the court, except that the name, address, and signature of the submitting attorney must appear on all orders below the judge’s signature line.
