Probate


Significant life events such as adoption, guardianship, and death can trigger the need for families to go to Probate Court.  In a guardianship proceeding, the person at risk of having a guardian appointed has a right to a lawyer.  The court must appoint a lawyer if the person cannot afford counsel.  After a person dies, any money, property or debts the person had may be handled by opening an estate in Probate court.
