An executor can obtain updated probate certificates at any time by coming to see us in person or by submitting a written request. Written requests should include the name of the estate, the number of updated certificates being requested, and a $5.00 fee per certificate, payable to Hunterdon County Surrogate.
An administrator is limited to one certificate per asset. If additional assets are discovered, the administrator should make an appointment to provide the new information and sign an Amended Application for Administration to obtain the additional certificates necessary. This may carry a $25 open-file fee and $5 fee per certificate, payable to Hunterdon County Surrogate.
