Customer Question
How do I get...

How do I get a form to be appointed personal representative for my deceased son, he left no will & his daughters want me to process the paperwork in the probate court Oakland County Michigan

Lawyer's Assistant: Because laws vary from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

I just did, Oakland County, Michigan

Lawyer's Assistant: What documents or supporting evidence do you have?

Death certificate & I need the paperwork for his daughters to sign and appoint me as personal representative

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No, but have previously spoken to someone by the name of Barrister regarding this.
