Simplified Probate for Small Estates in Georgia

Written by Dianne Rosell, LawServer Attorney-Editor   
Last Updated December 12, 2008

In general, when someone dies, the estate must go through probate which can be a complicated and lengthy process. But many states provide less complicated options for smaller estates.

Georgia law provides for simplified probate when an individual has died intestate and there has been no personal representative appointed in this state, an heir of the decedent may file a petition requesting an order that no administration is necessary.
