Griffin, Georgia Attorneys Assist With Wills and Probate
Dutton & Dutton Experienced With Estate Planning
A last will and testament can perform various critical functions, including distributing property, naming an executor for an estate, designating guardians for minor children, and forgiving debts after death. If a Georgia resident passes away without a valid will, they are said to have died “intestate,” meaning that their property will likely have to go through probate before it can be distributed to their heirs.
When one joint tenant passes away, ownership of the entire asset goes to the surviving joint tenant, without the need for a court order. However, you will need an attorney to complete a new deed, an affidavit, and a PT-61 form.
