Ottawa County Probate Court

Mental Health Proceedings

Another major function of the Probate Court concerns proceedings under the Mental Health Code. These proceedings pertain to commitment for hospital care of persons alleged to have a mental illness and guardianship proceedings for the developmentally disabled.


The Probate Court handles other matters such as allowing persons to deposit their will in a designated vault ($25 each), delayed registration of foreign births, opening decedent safe deposit boxes, secret marriages, appointing members to the state boundary commission, and tax commission.
