The Montgomery County Register of Wills encourages the use of the Courthouse Dropbox as well as mail to submit any paperwork. While we are making appointments for in-person visits we are very limited in the number of appointments per day and recommend submitting paperwork by mail or dropbox to expedite the process.
We will continue the live on-line Chat which will be fully staffed by auditors and deputies between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm M-F. We have found the Live Chat to be more efficient however phone lines are now being answered in the office as well.
Visitors to our office are on an appointment basis only. All visitors will be screened at the entrances to the courthouse and your name will be placed on a list to gain access for the date and time of your appointment. All Appointments are limited to 2 persons max.
The records department will continue to be closed to the public. Any request for copies should be made on-line or by telephone.
Please remember masks must be worn and social distancing of 6ft must be observed at all times in the courthouse.
