The probate court is a statutory probate court headed by an elected judge, the Honorable Bonnie Robison. The probate court is also served by Associate Judge David W. Jahn.

In general, the probate court probates the wills of deceased persons, declares the heirs of deceased persons who die without a will, establishes guardianships for incapacitated persons and minors, supervises court-ordered involuntary mental health commitments, and administers eminent domain cases initiated in Denton County.

The probate court also has jurisdiction to hear lawsuits related to an estate of a decedent or ward as well as actions by or against a personal representative of a decedentís or wardís estate. These ancillary cases cover a wide range of topics, from products liability to fiduciary litigation to medical malpractice to family law.
