                          PROGRAM/SERVICES/GOALS
Estate Division - Probates wills, administers estates of deceased persons,
conservators for minors and issues marriage licenses.

Mental Health Division - Has jurisdiction over the involuntary commitment of the
mentally ill, and chemically dependent persons, appoints and manages guardians and
conservators for adults who are adjudicated incapacitated.

Goal - To provide the most efficient, people oriented, error free service in the state. To
handle workload increases due to population growth, increased use of the courts and
mandates by court administration and the judicial system and to search for additional
ways to serve the public by efficient use of staff and resources through the use of
volunteers.

Goal - To increase efficiency, by utilizing an imaging system to retrieval of documents
needed rather than spending man hours due to shifting of files and documents from
one person to another. The imaging system allows several people to access the
information, file, or document at the same time.
