C. Glenn Cook, Jr.
Attorney at Law
A Will is a legal document created by you to determine how your property, known as your estate, is distributed after your death. By drafting and executing a Will, Georgia laws allow you to dispose of your property as you wish. A little discretionary planning allows for the smooth transition of your property at your death.
In Georgia, you must be 14 years old and of sound mind to draft a Will. The Will must be in writing and signed by you or someone else in your presence. The written Will should be witnessed by two or more impartial people, also in
Your Will transfers titled property to people of your choosing. In the Will, you can also designate a guardian for minor children and name an Executor. A will does not transfer insurance policies, life estates, or property held in joint tenancy with right of survivorship.
The Will can be changed or revoked by you whenever you desire. After your death, the terms of the Will take place and Probate proceedings occur. If you do not have a Will, your property will be distributed according to Georgia laws.
