We cannot mandate that you use an attorney. However, unless you know what, how, and when to do each step of the estate process, we urge you to at least speak to an attorney regarding the estate. Due to litigation liability, employees in this office cannot make any determinations or instruct you in any manner as to what is required to administer an estate. Also, we are not permitted aid in the preparation of any forms.
Moreover, if you raise an estate and later discover it was not necessary to do so, we cannot refund any of the filing fees.
