GEORGIA PROBATE COURT: EXECUTOR AND ADMINISTRATOR FEES, SAVING THE ESTATE MONEY AND KEEPING THE PEACE AMONGST THE BENEFICIARIES AND HEIRS

As executor or administrator of a GA estate, you are entitled to the statutory fees for Georgia executors and administrators. These statutory fees are based on a percentage of assets taken into the estate, a percentage of income on estate assets during the administration of the estate and a percentage of assets distributed from the estate upon finalization and discharge of your fiduciary duty under the Official Code of Georgia Annotated and payable to an executor or administrator. Please note that these statutory fees as used in the Official Code of Georgia Annotated use the term; “personal representative” to refer to both an executor and administrator you should consult an experienced Georgia Probate attorney to understand these amounts.

IT IS VERY PROMISING IF NOT PROBABLE, THAT HIRING A GEORGIA ESTATE PLANNING AND PROBATE ATTORNEY AND LAW FIRM, WILL ACTUALLY SAVE THE ESTATE MONEY AND PRESERVE AND EFFECTUATE HARMONY AMONG THE BENEFICIARIES AND HEIRS OF THE ESTATE. THIS IS ESPECIALLY TRUE WHEN YOU RETAIN GA PROBATE ATTORNEY AND LAW FIRM WITH SIGNIFICANT PROBATE AND ESTATE DISPUTE LITIGATION EXPERIENCE. THE LAWYERS AND LEGAL TEAMS OF THESE FIRMS KNOW HOW TO RECOGNIZE POTENTIAL PROBLEMS THAT COULD ARISE AND PREVENT THEM FROM COMING TO FRUITION. BY THE SAME TOKEN, THE SAME GA PROBATE AND ESTATE ADMINISTRATION LAW FIRM CAN ADDRESS, REACT AND RESOLVE ANY PROBLEMATIC SITUATIONS BEFORE THEY BECOME MATERIAL ISSUES IN THE “EXPEDITIOUS” ADMINISTRATION OF THE ESTATE.

I believe almost everyone acting as a personal representative is better off with the help of an experienced Georgia probate lawyer. Despite this reality, many people named as personal representatives start out thinking they can handle the job without help. As time goes on and the duties and tasks required of them become more complicated, many realize they need the help of a professional Atlanta wills, trusts and estate lawyer.

Countless, executors and administrators, otherwise known generally as personal representatives, have come to me partway through the probate process, needing help unraveling complicated and costly legal problems that I could easily have helped them avoid if I had been part of the case from the beginning. Estate savings, protection from personal liability for Georgia estate executor or administrator and legal expertise are critical and essential additions a GA probate and experienced GA estate lawyer and law firm can impart to your Georgia probate estate administration matter.
