Guiding You Through Probate
The death of a family member can bring a number of legal and financial complexities that must be handled with care. A knowledgeable probate lawyer can guide you through these matters, making sure these critical legal matters are being handled properly. The probate process can be expensive, tedious, time-consuming, complex and stressful.
In Georgia, probate is the process of settling the affairs of a deceased person. The probate process typically entails:
- Appointing an estate representative
- Identifying estate assets and debts of the estate
- Placing creditors on notice
- Paying creditors
- Distributing assets in accordance with a will or if the individual dies intestate
