Welcome to the new website for the Hamilton County Probate Court, the Honorable Judge Ralph Winkler presiding. While this site is a marked departure from the design of our previous site, we have tried to retain all of the features and services – with added benefits. The "Online Archived Records" are not yet complete, but will be rolling out within the next few weeks.
One of the many benefits of this new design is its usability on mobile devices (e.g., smart phones and tablets). We have also tried to make everything more readable by incorporating larger fonts and making navigation more clear. This new site will also perform better on a wider array of browsers and platforms.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org or 513.946.3570.

The Hamilton County Probate Court is pleased to announce that it has expanded the Electronic Notification Program to provide advance notice to fiduciaries, guardians and applicants in addition to attorneys. Upon completion of the Electronic Mail Notification Request Form, program clients with an e-mail address may receive advanced notices of upcoming deadlines for required filings such as commissioner reports, guardians reports, inventories and accounts. The e-mail notice will be generated approximately 30 days prior to the issuance of the Notice of Overdue Requirement [Pink Card]. This courtesy reminder will serve as a tickler that will allow attorneys and fiduciaries time to prepare and file required filings before Court intervention is required.
