Good planning may be key to Georgia estate administration

Many people in Georgia and other locations across the nation tend to avoid discussions that involve their own mortality. Generally speaking, people would rather focus on living than dying, and many well-intentioned persons think they have all the time in the world to plan their estates. However, it may be that a key factor toward successful estate administration is in the planning. Some say that a poorly planned estate can be as damaging as having no plan at all in place at the time of one's death.

Resolving family squabbles through probate litigation

Some families in Georgia may find it difficult to resolve disputes regarding contested wills of deceased loved ones. When a portion or all aspects of a Last Will and Testament are contested, what follows is often an emotionally-charged battle between two or more persons. In many situations, those involved turn to the court through probate litigation, seeking resolutions to problems they have been unable to solve on their own.

Understanding the duties of trustees, executors & fiduciaries

There are various capacities in which a person may be asked to tend to the financial and personal affairs of a loved one or close friend who has passed away. Suffering the loss of a family member or friend is often a traumatic experience. Those who have been named as trustees, executors & fiduciaries (or to any one position) to a decedent's estate in Georgia may want to seek legal guidance to clarify the required duties and responsibilities.

Seeking guidance re estate administration duties

The final management and settlement of an estate is typically carried out under court supervision by a duly appointed person or persons. It is not uncommon for legal challenges to arise with regard to any number of issues, including payment of a decedent's debts, property or business assets and other inheritance concerns. It is not unusual for a person appointed in estate administration to have no previous experience handling such matters; therefore, it makes good sense to seek guidance from an experienced probate and estate administration attorney for help in executing one's duties properly.
