Surrogate Michael Dressler COVID-19 Announcement



The Bergen County Surrogate's Court will be closed to the public until further notice.

Please be advised that the Surrogate Court staff is in the office working hard for the citizens of Bergen County. It is my intent to close just the public portion of the office to protect all citizens of Bergen County from contracting COVID-19.

In the interim we have setup several temporary email addresses for each of our departments to continue to conduct business as close to usual as possible. In the event members of the public wish to send scanned documents to be reviewed by our office, worked on and receive input from our employees that availability will exist through the proper email channels outlined below.

Please do not ever hesitate to call our office at (201) 336-6700. The aforementioned e-mails are as follows:

A special thanks to our Bergen County Division of Data Processing for their tireless and talented efforts in the midst of this crisis.
