Definition of Probate in Atlanta
Probate occurs when the court supervises the legal handling of a deceased family member’s assets and other interests. In most cases, the probate process determines what family member, normally a surviving spouse, will handle the deceased’s finances. This typically includes paying off debts and taxes, determining the amount of assets owned and eventually distributing those assets as inheritances to various other family members.
While it is rare, disputed will claims will also be handled in court during a probate litigation process. Throughout the probate litigation proceedings, having a dedicated probate litigation attorney to give you counsel makes everything run smoother and more efficiently, especially when a dispute arises.
