The El Paso County Probate Courts are a statutorily created probate court system headed by elected judges. In general, a probate court probates the wills of deceased persons, declares the heirs of deceased persons who die without a will, establishes guardianships for incapacitated persons and minors, and supervises court-ordered involuntary mental health commitments in El Paso County.

A probate court also has jurisdiction to hear lawsuits appertaining to or incident to an estate of a decedent or ward, as well as actions by or against a personal representative of a decedent’s or ward’s estate. These ancillary cases cover a wide range of topics, from product liability to fiduciary litigation to medical malpractice to family law.
