    You mean the spouse doesn’t get all of the property?

    SpouseI was recently asked to speak at “A Love Letter to Your Heirs”, which is an Enrichment for Life Movement class taught by Lee Pence, a very well respected financial advisor.  I am very grateful for the opportunity because I always enjoy the opportunity to speak and educate on probate law.

    One of the largest shocking facts about probate law in Georgia is that if someone is married and has kids, and died without a will, then the spouse does not automatically receive all of the property.  It is split between the spouse and the kids.  I could tell that the audience at this event was surprised to learn about how the split works.  It’s just another reason why a will is so important.
