Probate Court has jurisdiction over cases concerning the disposition of property belonging to deceased persons, administration of court-supervised trusts, proceedings to create guardianships and conservatorships for minor children, incapacitated or incompetent adults, and civil commitment proceedings.

Probate law is based on the ecclesiastical law of the church and historically this court was known as the "widows and orphans court."  The Probate Court now operates under a modification of the Uniform Probate Code, specifically Minnesota Statutes 524 and 525, the Rules of Civil Procedure, and the General Rules of Practice, Title V.

The Probate Division is located on the Sixth Floor of the Ramsey County Courthouse.
