As of August 2, 2021, the Bergen County Surrogate’s Court will reopen to the public. Appointments for probating and other court work as well as record researching are mandatory. Individuals without appointments will be required to leave the premises.
In order to arrange an appointment, please call 201-336-6700 and ask for an employee in the appropriate division.
All individuals accessing the Surrogate’s Office beginning August 2, 2021 will be required to wear a mask. Social distancing and other guidelines as established by the CDC and the State of New Jersey must be observed by all.
In the alternative, we will continue our policy of probating estates and filing court documents remotely as we established in April 2020.
In the event that you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to being able to serve you in person again soon.
