Thank you for your interest in serving in the role of attorney for the Connecticut Probate Courts.
The Integrity of the Practice/Pro Bono Subcommittee of the CBA Estates & Probate Section publishes the Manual for Court-Appointed Attorneys in Courts of Probate. This resource provides key practice guidelines for attorneys practicing in the Probate Courts.
If you wish to be added to the Probate Court Administration Attorney Panel and be paid from the Probate Court Administration Fund, please complete and return three forms to Probate Court Administration: the Attorney Application, the State of Connecticut Agency Vendor Form (SP-26NB) and the W-9 (see below). They are also available at www.das.state.ct.us Vendor Profile Form SP-26NB.
The tax identification number, business entity, name and address must match on all forms for you to be set up in the accounts payable system.
Please mail these forms to the Office of the Probate Court Administrator.
Below is the fee schedule for attorneys appointed by the Probate Court for indigent clients and a blank CO-17 invoice. The fee schedule contains instructions on how to complete the CO-17. Be sure to assign a unique invoice number on each invoice and remember that all CO-17 invoices must be submitted to the Probate Court within six (6) months from the date services are rendered.
The Comptroller’s Office now offers two valuable services, Electronic Funds Transfer of payments and a Vendor Self-Service web site for accounts payable information. If you are interested in participating, send the Electronic Funds Transfer form and a copy of the W-9 to the address at the top of the EFT form.
The website is located at www.osc.ct.gov.
Please contact Probate Court Administration if you have any questions.
