NOTICE: The intent of this web site is not to provide legal advice, but to inform about procedures in probate matters.
It is important that you understand that legal representation or the advice of a lawyer is always beneficial to any person seeking resolution of a legal matter. This web site may answer some of your questions, but there is no guarantee it deals with any and all legal issues that may arise in resolving your matter.
If there is uncertainty regarding a procedure, seek the advice of an attorney. There are serious consequences for people representing themselves and doing so improperly.
The Pima County Bar Association offers legal forms and has a Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) program that, for a $35 referral fee (as of April 2009), can connect you to a licensed attorney who will provide a 30-minute consultation, legal advice, and a fee estimate for further services or representation (if necessary). The bar association also has a reduced-fee program, known as the Qualified-Income Legal Team (QUILT) program, for individuals who meet certain financial eligibility requirements and who are in need of assistance in a legal area included in the QUILT program. For more information, contact the Pima County Bar Association at (520) 623-8258, 177 N. Church Avenue, #101, Tucson, AZ 85701, or www.pimacountybar.org.
