The duties and responsibilities of the Probate Judge are many and varied.  Some duties are administrative in nature, others are judicial and some are legislative in character.  


The Probate Judge is recognized in a special category, because the Probate Judge has legal functions as well as many political and administrative roles. 


 The Code of Alabama 1975 and its supplements contain the general statutory provision affecting the Probate Office.  The State Legislature has passed many local acts and general acts affecting the Office of the Judge of Probate.


This division is also known as Judicial since many of the procedures are judiciary in nature.
