In pro Per
Depending on the estate, some petitioners may choose to appear in probate court without the representation of an attorney. However, probate documentation requirements are very specific. The services of a probate document company can help you avoid oversights that could be detrimental to the estate. Some fees are involved, but they are significantly less than that of a probate attorney.
The drawback: a probate document company cannot provide legal explanations or legal advice of any kind. They cannot tell you what to say in court, nor can they explain your actions to a judge. They only provide self-help services.
