Probate Notes
  • Questions regarding fees, forms or status of orderes should be directed to the Probate Unit of The Superior Court of California, County of Stanislaus Clerk's Office at 209-530-3100 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. -  4:00 p.m., Monday - Friday.

Probate Examiner, Nina Wendt, may be reached at 209-530-3180 or nina.wendt@stanct.orgDue to the volume of calls received by the Probate Examiner, it may be necessary for you to leave a message. Telephone calls are returned daily at 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.

It is the goal of the examiner to have probate notes posted five (5) calendar days prior to the hearing. If defects are noted, they mus t be corrected prior to approval of the moving papers.  If you are filing documents to cure technical defects, file-marked copies must be delivered to the Probate Examiner, City Towers Courthouse, 801 Tenth Street, Sixth Floor, Modesto, CA, at least three court days prior to the hearing (if filed less than five court day prior to the hearing, there will be a $25.00 late filing fee for each document).  For your convenience, a Drop Box is located at the security desk on the sixth floor.  If the door is closed, please slide your documents under the door.

Probate notes will be updated as needed when late-filed documents are reviewed.  Please note:  Late-filed documents that do not contain the hearing date in the caption require more time and effort to be matched to the files.  This may result in an otherwise avoidable continuance.
