Each transaction involved in the administration of an estate is subject to the examination and approval of the Probate Court.

Other matters within the Probate Court's jurisdiction are: issuance of marriage licenses, adoptions, guardianship proceedings, the involuntary commitment of the mentally ill, and land appropriation cases.
