What is the procedure for appealing the judge's decision?
In most counties, the appeal would ordinarily be filed in the Superior Court for that county. In counties in which the probate court is a court of expanded jurisdiction, the appeal would be filed with the Court of Appeals and the Supreme Court. In any case, the appeal must be filed within thirty days.
