Probate and Family Court

This section of Peter's Bench is dedicated to the employees of the Probate and Family Court who work extremely hard to make the court system function for the benefit of fellow citizens caught in the midst of personal crisis.


These weekly stories will give you a sense of life inside a Probate and Family Court. While some stories are straight fact, others are composites of several cases and, when appropriate, changes have been made to avoid the identifications of individuals involved. Sorry, there are no scandalous stories to be revealed - just the drama of everyday life at the Probate and Family Court.
