    Probate Law Changes A LOT From One State to Another

    probate lawI was recently asked to speak at the North Atlanta Business Association about the probate process in Georgia. The group had some really great questions and I had a wonderful time speaking with them.

    I am always grateful each time I have the opportunity to present to a group because there is so much misinformation floating around about Georgia probate law. I love having the opportunity to educate and separate fact from fiction. The cause of the misinformation, by the way, is that the laws about probate can change radically from state to state. So, someone may read an article on the Internet about California probate law and mistakenly believe that the same standards apply here to Georgia probate law, when the laws are really a lot different.

    It’s not that person’s fault – they just don’t know any better and the article may not even say what state the author is writing about. So, I am always happy when I have the opportunity to talk to a group about what the probate laws in Georgia actually are.

    Thanks NABA members, I really enjoyed it!
