Probate practice, jurisdiction, and the structure of courts exercising probate jurisdiction vary greatly from state to state. Created by the Commission on National Probate Court Standards, with support from the State Justice Institute, the Standards address the administration, operation, and performance of probate courts. They promote uniformity, consistency, and continued improvement in the operation of the nation's probate courts. The Standards and associated commentary, annotations, and reference materials bridge gaps of information, provide organization and direction to the future development of the probate courts, and set forth goals for the probate courts.
