GEORGIA PROBATE AND THE ESTATE ADMINISTRATION PROCESS – RESOURCES, TIPS, AND GUIDANCE

As a Georgia estate dispute and probate litigation lawyer, I have represented numerous Georgia estates, executors, administrators, heirs, and beneficiaries. In doing so, I have often times guided them to various “free web sites” so that they may see for themselves what is involved in the Georgia probate and estate administration process. There are a number of resources on the internet for use in effective estate administration and otherwise gather information about this complicated process. They are the following: The State of Georgia Probate Website ; The Georgia Courts Website ; The IRS ; and, most importantly the link to the county in which you are offering the will for probate (i.e. The Fulton County Probate Court Website)

The State of Georgia Probate Court Website and The Georgia Courts Website have links, forms and important information on estate administration and the probate process. In addition, theses sites contain a wealth of forms to be used in the State of Georgia (these two sites should be used to download any probate forms). The IRS site is an important sources of tax references, contact numbers, and information and documentation resources.

Unfortunately, these clerks and staff can not give you legal advice and are instructed to not engage in such action. Additionally, these sites are for informational purposes only, and while official, please know that nothing can replace the guidance of an experienced Georgia probate law firm.
