Thorough Execution Of Complex Probate
When a Georgia resident dies, their estate typically passes into probate regardless of a will’s presence. During the probate process, the courts decide upon the existence of a valid will, who will administer the estate, and ensure the payment of debts and distribution of assets.
The process varies depending upon the deceased’s estate and the estate planning tools that they employed in life. It can be very difficult for family members to navigate this detailed process, especially if they are out of state. Emert Law Firm, LLC, can assume responsibility for probate administration and ensure that your loved one’s wishes are thoroughly executed in a timely manner.
If you face the overwhelming prospect of probate, call one of our understanding attorneys at 678-926-9284.
Do Any Assets Not Enter Probate?
While most property passes into probate, some assets are exempt from the probate process, including:
- Revocable trusts
- Real estate that has a joint tenant
- Life insurance policies
- Retirement accounts with a beneficiary
- Certain bank accounts
On rare occasions, it is possible for select estates to avoid probate. For this to happen, the deceased must lack a will and all of their heirs must unanimously agree upon the division of assets and payment of debts. If there is any disagreement, the estate must pass into probate.
We can carefully evaluate all of the deceased’s assets and debts, ensuring that each enters the correct administration channels. Our lawyer has over 17 years of experience and can skillfully avoid the pitfalls commonly committed by inexperienced executors.
