Probate Court

In Georgia, each county has a Probate Court, which handles wills, supervises estates, grants guardianships and conservatorships over minors and incapacitated adults, and hears incompetency proceedings. An attorney who states that they practice in Probate Court may primarily handle the probate of estates, or may both handle the probate of estates and also handle guardianship and conservatorship proceedings. It may be helpful, when choosing an Elder Law attorney, to inquire if they have experience in the particular aspect of Probate Court proceedings in which you find yourself involved.
