Courts in Simsbury, Connecticut
Since Simsbury, Connecticut is a part of the County of Hartford, Connecticut, any court matters that arise will be handled within the Hartford County court system. A key part of what Nirenstein, Horowitz & Associates does is to help you find ways to stay out of court. By making an incapacity plan, for example, you don’t have to worry about family members having to initiate guardianship proceedings in case of incapacity. Making an estate plan can also make it possible to transfer assets outside of the probate process so family members don’t have to go to probate court during a time of despair after a death.
Still, there are times when going to court does become necessary, like when a loved one died without an estate plan to avoid probate or when a trust administrator does not fulfill his fiduciary duty. If you must go to court, you can find the appropriate court by visiting the state directory of probate courts. The Simsbury Regional Court is Probate Court PD-09 and the address of the court is 933 Hopmeadow Street, P.O. Box 495 in Simsbury, CT 06070-0495. You can reach the court via telephone at 860-658-3204.
