What is Probate?

Probate is the legal process of settling a deceased person’s estate. When someone dies, their assets must be passed on to heirs or beneficiaries. Probate is the court-supervised process of collecting and distributing the deceased’s property and resolving unpaid debts. A probate lawyer can help you navigate this complex process and ensure all requirements are met, and your loved one’s wishes are respected.
A probate lawyer in Georgia can help identify potential issues in an estate plan, such as tax liabilities or potential disputes between family members. They will also be able to minimize those risks by ensuring that all legal documents are properly executed and all requirements for the probate process are met. Legal topics like estate disputes, trust disputes, and fiduciary litigation can reach a successful resolution. Many clients in the metro Atlanta area have received our excellent service in various matters.
Ultimately, a probate lawyer can help you avoid costly mistakes by providing advice and legal counsel throughout the probate process. They can confirm that the deceased person’s assets are appropriately distributed according to their wishes and that any disputes over unresolved debts, trust administration, additional expenses, will contests or fiduciary duty are addressed.

What are Common Mistakes and Issues During Probate?

A client’s goals for their estate sometimes need a problem solver to achieve. Life is unpredictable, and an estate administration attorney is sometimes required for probate issues. Common mistakes made during probate can include not filing the correct paperwork in a timely manner, failing to pay creditors or taxes, or not following state laws. If any of these steps are neglected or incomplete, it can be difficult to settle an estate and cause delays in the process. Hiring a qualified attorney to help with the probate process will ensure all requirements are met, and potential issues are minimized or avoided.
Common issues that can arise during probate include disputes between family members or other beneficiaries, creditor claims against the estate, tax liabilities owed by the deceased, and challenges to the validity of a will. Probate can be a lengthy process that can take months or even years to complete if disputes or other issues need to be resolved.
Probate attorneys at Lunn Law LLC understand how difficult and stressful this time can be for individuals who have recently lost someone they love. We provide compassionate legal services aimed at making your experience as smooth as possible so that you don’t have to worry about any mistakes being made. Our goal is to make sure your loved one’s wishes are honored and that you receive any benefits due under Georgia law. Probate can be difficult, but legal guidance and advice make all the difference.

What if the Decedent Died Without a Will?

The estate must be distributed according to state law when a decedent dies without a will. The estate goes to the state if there are no heirs or beneficiaries. An experienced probate attorney can help navigate any complexity in determining who is entitled to receive assets from the estate.
For instance, if a family member was left out of the decedent’s will, they may still have certain rights under Georgia law. An attorney can review any paperwork and relevant documents and provide legal advice to determine if this individual can receive a portion of the deceased’s property.
A knowledgeable probate lawyer will also be able to make sure all creditors are properly notified and paid out promptly, along with reviewing all applicable state laws to reduce tax liabilities. At Lunn Law LLC, our attorneys have extensive experience navigating probate court proceedings and resolving disputes quickly and efficiently. Our lawyers understand how confusing and overwhelming it can be during this time and strive to provide high-quality legal services so that you can move forward with confidence.

I trusted my feelings and contacted a number of lawyers using Google to locate a divorce lawyer in Jonesboro, I spoke with some that stated that they had not handled divorce cases in years and that was the end of the conversation. I trusted my gut feelings when I came upon Lunn-White without even meeting face to face. I discussed my situation with Attorney Tiffany Lunn-White by way of Zoom in November of 2022 for Consultation after having a Counterclaim filed against me after the RESPONDENT Deserted and Abandoned me in September of 2016.

This firm is very professional! Although we did not always understand the process, Robin was always there to help! She continually followed up with us and kept us informed as we waited and whenever I had questions, she replied immediately! Once our case was finalized, all documents were sent to us in a very professional notebook with a check containing the remainder of our balance! I can definitely recommend this Lunn Law firm!
