1. Background. We summarize the undisputed facts. Dino DiCarlo created the trust on December 27, 1967, and funded it until his death on August 11, 1997. Under the terms of his will, which was allowed by the Probate and Family Court on January 7, 1998, Dino DiCarlo left all of his assets to his surviving spouse, Josephine DiCarlo.(5) Josephine DiCarlo suffers from Alzheimer's disease. Two of her children, David DiCarlo and Helen DiCarlo Reale, are her appointed legal guardians.

As the trust was initially executed, paragraph 9 provided that, at Dino DiCarlo's death, Josephine DiCarlo "shall be entitled to the income of this Trust during her lifetime." This paragraph was amended on November 21, 1979.(6) On October 6, 1981, this amendment was revoked and replaced with the following: "Josephine E. DiCarlo, shall be entitled to the income and principal, if necessary, of this trust for her care, comfort and maintenance as the sole beneficiary hereunder." This language was in effect at the time of Dino DiCarlo's death.

Court of Probate OR Probate Court


Explanation:
Court of Probate
Probate Court

Such courts deal with both the guardianship of children, administration of wills, and other relevant issues. Below please see some examples from online glossaries:

probate court
... A court with specialized jurisdiction over the proof of wills, the settlement of estates, and guardianships. ... from Rupp's Insurance & Risk Management Glossary ...

Probate
Broadly, a characterization of the functions of the Probate Court, whether it be the probate of a will, the approval of the accounts of an administrator of a decedent s estate, or any other judicial act within the province of the Court, including guardianships, conservator-ships, and the like.

Juvenile Court- Glossary
... 46-3-12 Glossary of Terms ... The putative father files a claim for paternity with the Court of Probate, and the Probate Court issues an order of paternity. ...
www.state.ct.us/dcf/Policy/court46/46-3-12.htm

Below is also a rather broad definition of "Probate Court", which I found in Webster's:

probate court,
a special court with power over administration of estates of deceased persons, the probate of wills, etc.

Ttribunal Tutelaire ; High Court (Family Division) / (Divisional Court); Magistrates' Court


Explanation:
Whilst the "normal" court does deal with such matters, you may wish to define it. You do have the choice of thirteen normal courts, your true choice being between one of three possibilities :
- Magistrates' Court
- High Court (Divisional Court)
- High Court (Family Division)

Subject to deciding whether or not to use the French term, it may be a good idea to decide E & W equiavlent comes clsoest.

I would recommend using the French language version in your translation as it is a specific court and the two systems are quite different. Never the less, you might think it appropriate to indicate its England/Wales equiavalent in brackets afterwards.

It looks as though the most likely term will be the High Court (Family Division), although the Magistrates' Court, and the High Court (Divsional Court) may also deal with matters relating to family issues custody, legal guardianship, and so on. The specific nature of the proceedings/application being made etc in your specific context will help you decide.

Here are a number of links which will help you :

2 - http://www.open.gov.uk/lcd/family/famfr.htm (link to Ld Chancellor’s Dpt)

3 - And here’s a link to a diagram of the court structure for England and Wales, clear concise and just on one page. (http://www.courtservice.gov.uk/info/cs_struc.pdf) if you can read PDF format files.

probate or family court in US


Explanation:
I never heard the term, "guardianship court," in the U.S. I agree with those who said "probate or family court." My family went through such a procedure when my grandmother developed Alzheimer's and it was the Probate Court that handled the matter.
