Welcome to the Home of the Probate Court Investigations Office. This site was designed to assist residents of Brazoria County and other counties in gaining a better understanding of the Guardianship process.
In Brazoria County, Guardianship matters are heard in the following Courts:
- County Court at Law #1 and Probate Court – Honorable Judge Jerri Lee Mills
- County Court at Law #2 and Probate Court – Honorable Judge Marc W. Holder
- County Court at Law #3 and Probate Court – Honorable Judge Jeremy E. Warren
County Court at Law #4 and Probate Court – Honorable Judge Lori Rickert
The Probate Court Investigation office reports to the four County Court at Law and Probate Courts and is staffed by:
- BB Brannan: Guardianship Investigator, firstname.lastname@example.org
Carol Groves: Secretary, email@example.com
The Guardianship Investigator investigates the circumstances alleged in an Application for Guardianship to determine whether a less restrictive alternative than guardianship is appropriate and submits a report to the Court. The Guardianship Investigator also audits all Annual Accounts, Annual Reports and other documents and submits recommendations to the Courts.
The Probate Court Investigation Department is the liaison between the Probate Courts and the guardians.
