Understanding Georgia Probate For Clients From Out Of State

The person named in a last will and testament to serve as the executor of the decedent's estate will often turn out to be an adult child who moved away from Georgia years ago. Likewise, in an intestacy case, when there is no will or designated executor, there might be no local next of kin available to serve as the estate's administrator.

If you're responsible for the administration of a Georgia estate while residing elsewhere, the advice of an experienced attorney can help you meet your obligations to the heirs, beneficiaries and the court with a minimum of inconvenience. With offices in Alpharetta and Cumming, attorney Tracy Teiger and his associates know how to work with estate fiduciaries on a remote basis, and on terms that keep you informed and engaged while reducing your need for travel.

We Understand Your Frustration. Let Us Help.

Our law firm's service on behalf of clients from other states covers a wide range of needs:

  • Probate of the will
  • Petition for letters of administration
  • Inventory of assets
  • Bonding of fiduciaries
  • Valuation of assets
  • Sale and transfer of estate property
  • Preparation of deeds and other transactional documents
  • Preparation of interim and final reports
  • Response to claims against the estate
  • Probate litigation as necessary
  • Final distribution of assets

As well as representing out-of-state clients in Georgia probate proceedings, the Teiger Law Center, P.C., also works with clients from other states who need assistance with ancillary probate in Georgia. In these cases, the decedent's estate will be administered somewhere else, but real estate or certain other assets located in Georgia will need to go through probate here.
