Probate is one of the areas of the law that I would highly encourage a legal representative to be retained. An attorney for the personal representative of the estate is almost essential because there are numerous areas of the probate code that need to be complied with in order for the estate to be successfully closed out, and the distribution to occur as the law requires. There are some areas of the law which might be easier for someone to represent themselves or do it themselves, but probate is certainly not one of those areas, because if something was done incorrectly, or if a creditor goes unpaid, or something along those lines, there could be potential problems down the road. The personal representative of the estate might be personally liable for whatever happens, so it’s vitally important to have an attorney help you with the probate process.
