Probate court is the place we go when we are either in charge of someone else’s affairs or we need to be in charge of someone else’s affairs, or someone has died. Probate court has broad powers to “do equity,” meaning to do what is fair under the law. But, it has a lot of rules. We can help you figure out if probate court is where you need to be and help you navigate all of the technical requirements once you’re there. Whether you choose to call us or not, if you’re thinking about going to probate court, do yourself a favor: Get all of the names and contact information for relatives within two degrees of the person you’re going to probate court about. That means, the person’s spouse or domestic partner, the person’s parents, grandparents, siblings, kids, and grandkids. You will have to serve notices to a LOT of people, and having this information handy will save you a LOT of time.
