Let’s face it, not a lot of people are familiar with probate law. That being said, the Internet has served billions of people worldwide as the answer to the questions they have. If you want to learn how to repair a faucet on your own, but have no training in plumbing, what do you do? You Google it. Google serves as a hub of information, made available to a person in seconds. As you would guess, since probate is not a well known part of law as say, personal injury, people have used Google to ask the almighty search engine probate related questions.

While the search engine can provide you thousands upon thousands of results, your best chance at getting answers to these questions is to ask a probate attorney.
