Warning About Self-Representation

Probate proceedings are complex and require detailed knowledge of many Ohio statutes, case law, rules and regulations. Our Court strongly encourages you to retain the professional services of an attorney who is experienced in probate law to represent you in any type of probate case.

The Court and its Deputy Clerks are prohibited by law from assisting you with any aspect of your case, including without limitation determining what forms are required and how to complete those forms. The Court and its Deputy Clerks cannot provide you with any information regarding how to properly handle your case beyond the information on this website.

Our Court applies the law equally to every person involved in a proceeding in Greene County Probate Court, regardless of whether the person is or is not represented by an attorney. There are no special exceptions or more lenient standards for persons who represent themselves without the assistance of an attorney.

For more information about self-representation please visit the Ohio Judicial Conference website for guides and brochures.
