What type of will do you need for your estate?
The Meyring law Firm will help you with a simple will or a complex will
with testamentary trusts and special provisions that address each individual
client's planning goals. When life insurance benefits are directed
to the estate, a "complex" will with a testamentary trust may
provide for the support, education, and health care of minor children
for years after the will is probated.
Wills can be created for the following purposes:
- Leave your property to individuals or organizations
- Name a personal guardian for your children's care
- Name an executor to carry out the wishes of your will
- Name a trusted person to manage property that is left to minor children
Requirements of a Will
After the will is created, you will have opportunities to update the will
in case any major changes in your life occur through a
codicil. Our Firm can help you create the will, update the will, and ensure that
it remains in line with the specific requirements.
Requirements for a last will and testament in Georgia include:
The testator must be a minimum of 14 years old
The testator must be of sound mind and memory
Must be in writing and signed by the testator or within his or her presence
Two or more witnesses must sign the will in the testator's presence
Wills must make a disposition of property
How Your Will Can Work for You
Our attorney helps support the will that is presented to the probate court
of someone challenges it, and the Firm will also contest wills for clients
who need to challenge the validity of questionable wills. Our legal team
helps our clients with will challenges in the probate court and disputes
over intestate estates; known as estate litigation, we will help the family
resolve estate disputes through negotiation, mediation, and ultimately
litigation if and when necessary.
You can protect your family and your property by creating a will. If you
happen to die in the absence of a will, your property will be distributed
based on Georgia's intestacy laws, which give your property to your
relatives based on how close they are in relation to you. For example,
if you do not have a spouse or children, your grandchildren or parents
will receive your property.
Your last will and testament is your opportunity to ensure that your property
is accurately distributed to the beneficiaries you have selected. You
should ensure that you are properly represented by calling for a
