Civil and miscellaneous cases in Probate Court are, for the most part, litigation cases initiated pursuant to the applicable section of the Ohio Revised Code. Forms do not exist for a Complaint or Petition on most civil actions. You must refer to the Ohio Revised Code and Ohio Rules of Civil Procedure to initiate a civil action properly in Probate Court.
Please note that when filing a Complaint or Amended Complaint, a Summons must be prepared completely and provided for each Defendant listed in the Complaint. Only one Defendant should be listed on each Summons.
