There are a number of state-specific forms you may need when going through the probate process.

General Forms

In Oregon, the local Circuit Court handles wills and estate probate, except in Grant, Harney, Malheur, Sherman, and Wheeler Counties, where the local County Court has jurisdiction (note that Gilliam County transferred responsibility from its County Court to the Circuit Court in 12/23). 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.

You can check with your local court for the forms they might prefer, and below you will find some of the more common OR forms:

Oregon does not provide state-wide forms (other than for small estates; see below), but you can obtain ready-made forms at stationery stores, you can purchase online at the link above (for example, a petition for probate of will costs ~$10), or you can have a lawyer prepare any necessary documents.

Small Estates

Small estates sometimes need only 1 specialized form or affidavit: see Small OR Estates.
