People who have experienced the loss of a loved one know the last thing a grieving widow or child wants to consider is how to properly handle the affairs of their loved one’s estate. In addition to handling immediate concerns such as funeral arrangements, family members may have to deal with the possibility of disputes over the will or the disposition of the person’s estate.
Probate is the legal process that occurs after a person passes away, either leaving behind a will or no estate plan at all. It is a way to make sure that their estate is properly distributed to their heirs according to Georgia laws, that all of their debts are resolved and that their affairs are completely in order. When it comes to probate, our job is to guide clients through the necessary steps and make sure that they are well-aware of the codes and effective strategies involved.
