There are a number of state-specific forms you may need when going through the probate process.
In Vermont, the local Probate Division of the County Superior Court handles wills and estate probate, If you are using EstateExec and you enter the decedent's county of legal residence on the Decedent tab, you will see a direct link to the appropriate court here.
