A Message from Susan J. Hoffman
Hunterdon County Surrogate

Dear Citizen:

Welcome to the Hunterdon County Surrogate's Web Site. As one of Hunterdon County's elected Constitutional Officers I am responsible for the administration of the services offered by the Surrogate's Court. I serve as Deputy Clerk of the Superior Court, Chancery Division, Probate Part as well as Judge of the Surrogate's Court. As you browse further you will see a Directory which lists and categorizes a listing of our services.

I am proud to be one of the first Surrogate's in the State of New Jersey to utilize the internet, providing valuable information to you. I will be continuing to add to the information listed. I am delighted that you found our website and I invite you to utilize the information and services we provide.

Thank you,
Susan J. Hoffman,
