Dealing with the loss of a loved one is a difficult period in anyone’s life. Undertaking a confusing legal process during this uncertain time can be overwhelming. Many people simply do not know where to begin.
Probate is the process by which an individual transfers their property to another individual or charity after their death. A probate estate is made up of all the things an individual owns during their lifetime. If the individual had a will, then the will controls how the estate is distributed. If they did not have a will, then Georgia has a set of rules called the law of intestacy that will make that decision for them.
