A Message from Nicki Burke

WELCOME! It is my privilege and pleasure to address you as Surrogate of Salem County. This is an important position which impacts many aspects of the lives of the residents of Salem County.

As one of Salem County’s elected Constitutional Officers I am responsible for the administration of the services offered by the Surrogate’s Court. I also serve as Deputy Clerk of the Superior Court, Chancery Division, Probate Part as well as Judge of the Surrogate’s Court. Due to continuous changes of the New Jersey laws and frequent updates to our forms, our website is changing constantly. Please be sure to check back often for those changes. For questions, I am only a phone call away.

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Salem County Surrogate!
