About the Commissioner of Accounts

The Commissioner of Accounts is a court-appointed attorney who has the legal responsibility to oversee your actions as a Personal Representative to ensure that you preserve the Estate assets and perform your duties as required by law. This means that you must file an Inventory and First and/or subsequent Accountings with the Commissioner, for review and approval. Upon approval, these Inventory and Accounting documents are filed with the Probate Clerk. The Probate Clerk will record these documents and they become public records.
