While anyone licensed to practice law can act as an attorney for the estate's personal representative during the probate process, Mr Douglas emphasized: "Opting for the right lawyer, whose expertise is in wills, trust administration, estate planning and probate, will be of enormous help.''
"They can answer any questions arising from those issues and act as a guide through the complicated probate process."
The Founder of Brian M. Douglas & Associates, LLC, in Atlanta, GA, also urged citizens to understand better issues around legal fees and the probate's possible timeframe.
He advises speaking to a lawyer experienced in probate law to address Georgia's executor compensation and how these can impact your particular circumstance.
Probate fees can vary in Georgia – uncontested probate can start from $3000. If the process is contested, the cost could exceed $3000 and as much as $10,000, depending on the case's particulars.
He added that depending on the complexity and size of the estate, probate could typically take upwards of 12 months to be completed.
One way to avoid the probate process is to set up a living trust as part of the estate plan. A living trust enables you to move your property ownership, and an appointed trustee will oversee the asset administration and distribution.
Douglas added: "Communication is always key during such difficult times. So find out how long your questions will take to be answered by a law firm.’’
“You may discover some leave questions unanswered for days, while others answer them quickly."
