Beginning October 1, 2005, the original Probate Investigator's Report that is filed with the Probate Clerk's Office, must be placed into an 9" by 12" manila envelope with a "Confidential" label affixed to the cover. The label requires you to provide the name of the case, the case number, the date of birth of the proposed incapacitated person, and the names of the attorneys and other interested persons (e.g. Investigator's name.)
If you normally file your report by mail, you'll just need to mail it in a larger envelope to accommodate the 9" by 12" size of the envelope the report must be placed in for filing. Please remember to affix a completed "Confidential" label to the outside of the envelope.
Step 1: attach an Investigator coversheet to your report.
Step 2: Insert the original "to be filed" copy of your report into an 9 " by 12" envelope. Attach (tape/paste/etc.) a "Confidential" label to the envelope. Provide the required information on the label.
Step 3: File your original report with the Probate Clerk's office.
Step 4: Provide copies of your report as usual to the Commissioner, Petitioner's attorney and Court appointed Attorney.
If you have any questions about how to complete the label or file the report, contact the Superior Court Probate Counsel.
