First, the will (original) must be taken to the Clerk’s Office of the Circuit Court. It is recommended that an appointment be made with a deputy clerk. You will be given some forms to fill out prior to the appointment. Second, the person offering the will for probate or seeking to qualify should know all assets owned by the deceased and, as accurately as possible, the value of those assets. A copy of the death certificate should be taken to the court. This document contains much of the information that will be needed by the deputy clerk assisting you.
