The Fond du Lac Register in Probate asked that we pass along information that they are now accepting e-filed probate cases.  Please see the memo and forms list on the Attorney Resources Page!
Lynn Steger, the Dodge County Register in Probate, confirmed that Dodge County is also accepting e-filed probate cases. This is VOLUNTARY (at this time) and is only for estates.  CCAP is still working on building the platform for guardianships and juvenile matters – at this time you cannot efile on these cases.  Please talk to Lynn or Mary Jo if you have any questions.   Lynn.Steger@wicourts.gov  or mary.kuen@wicourts.gov or 920-386-3550
