What is the Probate Process in Georgia?
Probate is a court proceeding where the deceased’s last will and testament, if there is one, is acted out to satisfy creditors and to pass along items to those they intended to inherit said items including physical assets, bills, and digital assets like email and social media accounts. This is overseen by a named executor or administrator. Should there be no will in place, state law steps in to dictate who has initial rights to assets and property, resulting in sometimes contentious dealings.
