Helping You Overcome Obstacles When Resolving Probate Issues

When it comes to resolving the sale of the decedent’s home, accounting for various assets and other probate-related matters, these and other issues need to be handled in the Georgia probate courts.

But what happens when heirs and other interested parties live outside the state? In many probate cases, family members (including heirs or those named as the executor/administrator of the estate) reside all over the U.S. Travel, finding time to invest in the process and obtaining help from attorneys you can trust are all obstacles you will need to overcome.

At Ashley Miles, P.C., our estate law attorneys will be your legal presence in the local area. We can work with you over the phone, via email or in person while outlining the processes and procedures involved in resolving your probate.

Although each case presents unique issues, some of the most common out-of-state probate matters we see include:

  • Cases where the decedent lived outside of Georgia but owned property and other assets (such as a vacation home) in Georgia
  • Cases where the decedent lived in Georgia but kept property and assets outside the state
  • Cases in which the decedent composed his or her will outside of Georgia or in a foreign country
  • Cases in which the person named the executor or administrator of the estate lives outside Georgia

If you have questions about your role as an executor/administrator, have questions regarding the administration of your loved one’s estate or live outside of Georgia and want to make sure the probate process is being handled properly, we are here to provide the information and representation you need.
