Many people in Georgia invest time, energy and money into planning for the future. As a result, many have accumulated a significant amount of assets by the time they are ready to retire. However, part of planning for the future includes the creation of a will. Wills allow people to have a say in the distribution of their assets as well as reduce the chance of conflict among family members following the death of a family member.
For many people in Georgia who are perfectly healthy, it is difficult to imagine that their life could be taken unexpectedly. Unfortunately, death can come at any moment, making the necessity of wills all that much more striking. One out-of-state case involving the death of a mother and a will her sons claim was forged highlights the importance of taking certain precautions during the estate planning process.
