Online Legal Notices

Legal Notices and Advertisements provide an important way for the public to access accurate and verifiable information about governmental and public interest activities. The DWLR serves citizens of the District of Columbia with legal advertising 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 (simply email us at dwlr@dwlr.com and state the date of the paper you would like to receive).

To search for a specific probate notice, it is 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 www.dccourts.gov and then click on the Superior Court Cases Online link) and they can provide you with this information. If you have received an invoice from us, the publication dates are listed on that invoice as well.

PLEASE NOTE: The following legal notices are the first insertions from the listed week, and therefore, they would not contain any listings from second or third insertions.
