Regardless of your age, an Estate Plan is important. You may not realize it, but if you do not have a Last Will and Testament, Georgia will likely distribute your property in a manner that you would not have chosen. Under Georgia law, if you have a spouse and children, your spouse and each of your children will take an equal share of your property when you pass away, even if your children are minors. However, if you have a Last Will and Testament, Georgia will follow your wishes. Additionally, we believe that it is important to make your wishes known not only in regards to your property, but also your medical wishes. This is why we include Advanced Directives for Healthcare at no additional charge for all of our Estate Planning Clients. Please give us a call, and one of our attorneys will be glad to discuss what documents are appropriate given your individualized circumstances!
