How long does it take to get a hearing before a judge in probate court?


I am in a dispute over a house between myself and my mother.  We both own the house we need to settle in court.  How can we get a hearing and how long does it take to get one?


First, I do not know that Probate Court is the appropriate venue for your hearing. If all parties who own the property are alive, Land Court may be the correct forum.   Secondly, a hearing requires that once you apply to the court, notice must be provided to the other party. There are all sorts of procedural issues that you will encounter.  While you can represent yourself pro se, I would suggest consulting an attorney.
