Online Legal Notices

Public Notices and Legal Advertisements provide an important way for the public to access accurate and verifiable information about governmental and of public interest activities. The DWLR serves citizens of the District of Columbia with public notice and legal advertisment information on a variety of topics, including Trustee Sales (foreclosures), Probate Notices, Name Changes, Adoptions, Divorces, Annual Reports, Libels of Information and more. Our daily newspaper can be found and accessed by the public in libraries around D.C. (and many law school libraries across the country). Persons placing legal advertisements can also request a copy of one particular issue of the paper, at no charge. 

To search for a specific probate notice, it would be best to know the first date of publication and use that as your search criteria. If you do not know this information, you can contact the Probate Division or search the Court’s Online Docket (at and then click on the Superior Court Cases Online link) and they can provide you with this information.
