Atlanta Incapacity Planning Attorney
Protect Yourself, Your Assets & Your Loved Ones
The thought of planning for a time that you might be unable to make decisions for yourself can seem morbid, but it is important. Incapacity planning lets you clearly define your preferences and lay out a plan regarding the management of your finances and medical care. In the event of a sudden illness or accident, everything would be planned for. Your wishes would be honored, and your loved ones would be spared the burden of trying to decide what you would have wanted. You would even stave off arguments between loved ones about your care and avoid abuse by family members more interested in your assets than your well-being.
Incapacity planning ensures you, your assets, and your loved ones are protected.

Planning for Incapacity in Atlanta
Many legal tools can be used to plan for temporary or permanent incapacity. When these are used correctly, they offer an ironclad way to prioritize your wishes and designate trusted individuals to manage your financial affairs or make healthcare decisions on your behalf. If you do not make these decisions ahead of time and take the appropriate legal steps, Georgia law will take over. The court will appoint a guardian or conservator to make decisions on your behalf. If you want control over your future, you must avoid this outcome.
Some of the tools we use in our Atlanta incapacity planning practice include:
Because we also handle all areas of elder law, long-term care planning, estate planning, and probate, we take a well-founded, holistic approach to incapacity planning. Every possible tool is considered, and every consequence is evaluated so we can develop a truly personalized, effective incapacity plan.

Frequently Asked QuestionsHere to Help Every Step of the Way
An individual can write his own will in Georgia but must follow certain statutory rules laid out in order to ensure the will is deemed valid by a probate court.
People hire a probate attorney because the benefits of having an attorney outweigh the costs of time and effort. Mainly people hire a probate attorney to save time and energy, reduce their worries, and navigate the probate process with a professional. So no, you do not need a lawyer to probate a will, if it is worth the time and effort to do it yourself.
Executor is the person named in the last will and testament that's appointed by the probate court to administer the estate of the decedent according to the will.
In Georgia, there is a legal mandate for the holder of a will to submit it to the court for probate per O.C.G.A. § 53-5-5. If a will is not filed with the court, any heir or beneficiary can petition the court to direct the will holder to file the will with the proper court. Wills are meant to be public documents once the grantor has passed away. Sometimes if a will is not filed with the court, beneficiaries and heirs cannot take legal possession of assets specified in the Last Will and Testament.
