Effective Probate And Estate Administration
Trust the experts at the Estate Planning Law Group of Georgia to effectively and efficiently move an estate through probate and the administration process.
What Is Probate Law?
After a person dies, it’s up to someone else (their personal representative) to administer their estate. Often, proceedings in probate court are required before the personal representative has the authority to act on behalf of the estate. Most folks who act as personal representatives (Executors or Administrators) do not have experience in probate court and find the prospect daunting – many choose to work with an experienced estate administration lawyer because the process can become very overwhelming and time-consuming.
