One of the most important things you can do to protect your estate is to draft a comprehensive will. Without a will, the State of Georgia will divide your estate during probate according to state intestate laws. We will draft a will that protects your estate at a nominal cost. You can have a say in this important decision by drafting a will, and these other estate documents:
- Living Will
- Durable Power of Attorney for Healthcare
- Financial Power of Attorney
- General Power of Attorney
Probate does not have to be a costly and time-consuming process. For most people, probate is a relatively inexpensive and prompt process. This does not mean that it is not important to hire an experienced probate attorney. Our firm will guide you through the probate and estate administration.
Georgia has a streamlined probate process that focuses on settling the affairs of an estate expeditiously. If you and your spouse own a property jointly, it will probably not have to go through probate. Property is rarely held up in Georgia probate. Probate should be a process that transfers ownership to beneficiaries in a timely manner, while minimizing estate tax liability, and fulfilling your needs and wishes. Additionally, there are procedures to protect homestead property from claims of creditors and others.
