Can I file a partition action on my own without an attorney? It's just real property (one house) I cannot find an affordable attorney and I don't have the income to pay thousands to an attorney for a partition of a house that isn't even worth 45k. Only two owners, myself and a sibling. Where do I get the forms?
Perhaps you can find an attorney that would accept there fee out of the proceeds of the sale, or a combination of part of the fee upfront and the remainder at the time of sale. I presume your sibling wants to hold on to the property? It is always best to try to work out an agreement especially with a family member instead of going to court.
There are no forms. There is a popular misconception among the public that lawyers have a form for everything. That ain't so!
Attorney's fees and number 1 out of the proceeds of a partition sale. I will take one with only the filing fee deposit. You should be able to find someone in Lakeland who can handle this under those terms.
