Probate Court

The Trumbull Probate Court was established by state statute and commenced operations on January 2, 1959. The towns of Easton, Monroe and Trumbull are served by this Court. Prior to 1959, these towns were served by the Bridgeport Probate Court.

  • Adoptions
  • The appointment of guardians for minors and the intellectually disabled
  • Changes of names
  • Conservators for incompetent persons
