Learn More About Estate Administration And Probate
Estate administration is much more complicated than fulfilling a will. We can help you with considerably complicated matters like:
- Collecting all assets of the estate, including stocks, real estate, money and personal assets
- Paying any owed debts to insurances, utility bills, etc.
- Alerting the bank, pension, 401k and other major institutions of the account holder’s passing
- Determining heirs based on any wills, or following the intestacy laws (which is a process that occurs if someone passes without a will)
If the estate needs to go to probate, you should prepare yourself for a longer journey.
Probate is the process in which a court oversees the administration process. Because a court is involved, each task in this process takes more time to complete. In Georgia, the law allows an heir to request to skip the probate process. Conditions like all heirs agreeing to skipping probate and agreeing on how to divide the assets need to be met. We can help you either work through the probate process or try to work around it.
