Probate Administration Overview

Probate Attorney in Atlanta, Georgia

The loss of a loved one is one of the hardest things that can happen in your life. However, dealing the estate and legal issues shouldn’t be an additional burden. Should you need legal help during this difficult time, we pride ourselves on serving the individual needs of each client as they go through the process of Probate. Acting your Atlanta probate attorney, we can help if the loved one left behind a Will, or through the process of Administration, if they did not leave a Will. We also will help determine whether you qualify to file a Year’s Support petition to bypass the process of Probate and, if so, whether that helps your interests.

Our Probate, Administration, and Year’s Support practice can prepare, file, and handle legal proceedings dealing with setting up and closing an estate. We specialize in the issues surrounding Wills, Trusts, Estates, Will Contests, Beneficiary Rights, Heir Rights, Appointment of Executors, Executor Duties, Appointments of Administrators, Administrator Duties, and Fiduciary Law.

Estate Administration

In situations where a person dies without a Will, the distribution of the estate occurs under a process called “Administration”. Our office can prepare the Petition for Administration and assist with the successful distribution of the estate as required by Georgia law, including challenges to the estate distribution, heir rights, appointments of Administrators, Administrator duties, and claims by creditors and other interested third parties.

Year’s Support

In Georgia, surviving spouses and minor children are entitled to a process called Year’s Support to set aside all or a portion of the estate for their maintenance. Among the benefits of this process is that it allows the surviving or spouse or minor child to receive from the estate even if a Will excludes them.

Our firm can help in the preparation of the Year’s Support Petition and navigating the process involved with the Petition. We can help a spouse or the guardian of minor children present their petition and we can represent another beneficiary who would like to oppose the Year’s Support Petition.
