Do I need an Attorney to apply for Guardianship?:
In some counties, it will be necessary to have an attorney to file
the guardianship application in probate court. That is especially
true where the application is for a Guardianship of the Estate where
a bond will also have to be posted. It is also true in some of the larger
urban counties where it can be a formidable task to negotiate the probate
court system. However, it is often worthwhile to contact the Clerk of
the probate court. He/she knows what is going on and can be very helpful.
