 Recording Wills


To record a Will in the Madison County Clerk's Office the individual must be deceased.  A Will must go through probate in District Court located in the Hall of Justice.

  • We must receive the original Will with the court order attached.
  • The cost to record a Will is a flat fee of $8.00.
  • The Clerk's office will retain the original copy.

If you would like a copy after the Will has been recorded, the fee is $.25 per page. A certified copy of a Will is $5.00.


We do not record Living Wills.
