Notice to Creditors

You may submit your Notice to Creditors to settle an estate by filling out the form below and uploading the document (examples) you received from the Clerk of Courts.

Once we receive your submission, we will contact you with the dates of publication and to arrange payment of the notice.

Notice to Creditors advertisements are required to run once a week for 4 weeks.  After the final run, an affidavit will be mailed that will satisfy the court requirement.

All the information needed to place the ad is on the document you received from the courts. Please review the document thoroughly to ensure names and addresses are correct.  Any errors should be reported to the clerk’s office as soon as possible.  The News & Observer is not responsible for errors made by the clerk of court.

The notice should appear in the county most closely related to the deceased address.  Please select one newspaper from the list below based on that distribution.  For information on pricing and distribution, click here.
