The Clerk’s Office (253 798-7455) is at the end of the long, open hallway on the first floor, in Room 110.
The Ex Parte Commissioner’s Office is in Room 107, immediately to the right of the Clerk’s Office, and is available to hear ex parte matters Monday through Friday from 9 to 11 AM and from 1:30 to 3:30 PM.
Caution: Unlike the Clerk’s Offices in, for example, King or Snohomish Counties, the Pierce County Clerk’s Office will not set a hearing by the filing of a generic Notice of Hearing. For a hearing to be set in Pierce County, a specific Pierce County form is required to be filed, for example, a Pierce County Note for Commissioner’s Calendar.
Opening a probate file at the Clerk’s Office requires a completed Pierce County Case Type 4 Cover Sheet.
The Clerk’s Office supplies Letters, so you don’t have to prepare a Letters form.
To determine if there has been a probate proceeding begun in Pierce County for a Decedent, see Pierce County Clerk’s Office Search.
