The DuPage County Probate Court has one judge, the Honorable Paul M. Fullerton, who handles all Probate and Guardianship matters for the entire county. The Probate call for routine matters is heard Monday through Friday at 9:00 a.m. in Courtroom 2009 of the DuPage County Judicial Center located at 505 N. County Farm Road, Wheaton, Illinois. Contested hearings are heard later on in the morning or in the early afternoon.
Also, the DuPage County Probate Court is a busy court for Probate matters in the Chicagoland area. Since DuPage County has a high volume of Probate matters and only one Probate judge, the Probate Court will sometimes become overwhelmed with cases. This leads to lengthy delays in setting a case on the court call (sometimes taking several weeks), and also results in long court calls for the 9:00 a.m. time slot. Fortunately, the court clerks and judges' clerks are very friendly and knowledgeable in helping people to navigate the court system.
Additionally, all probate filings (including the filing of original Wills) are done in the clerk's office on the first floor of the DuPage County Judicial Center in Wheaton, Illinois. Their office hours are typically 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
