If you are missing addresses for any interested persons, after your petition is processed and you receive the hearing information, you must arrange for publication in an English language newspaper that is published in Wayne County.

An interested person whose address or whereabouts is not known may be served by publication if a declaration of intent to give notice by publication, PC617, is filed with the court. Except in certain proceedings, after an interested person has once been served by publication, notice is only required on interested persons whose address is known or becomes known during the proceedings.

Contact the Detroit Legal News at or (313) 409-6398 or another Wayne County newspaper to arrange for publication.

Note: Effective March 1, 2024, a $114.40 publication fee will be charged by the Detroit Legal News; if you select another newspaper, check with them to determine their fee.
