What is a Will?
A Last Will and Testament is a document that allows you to give property at the time of your death to the person you want to have it. A Will also typically names someone to carry out your wishes (an Executor) and also names a Guardian if you have minor children.
Who needs a Will?
All adults need a will, especially if you are married, have children, or have any assets. In addition to distributing your assets to the persons you desire, a will allows you to specify the individual you would like to have custody of your minor children, and also specify your wishes for your final resting place. Having a valid will ensures that your property will be distributed according to your wishes without significant costs.
What if I die without a Will?
If you die without a will, then state law will determine the individuals who will receive your property, and the Courts will decide the remaining issues. For example, the court will appoint a guardian for any minor children. Also, the court will appoint an administrator to distribute your property, and allow the administrator to retain a fee for his work.
How much does a will cost?
We charge a flat fee, starting at $275, for all wills. Living Wills and Power of Attorneys generally start at $75 each.
What is the difference between a Will and a Living Will?
The state of Georgia allows an adult person to make a written directive known as a Living Will, instructing his physician to withhold or withdraw life sustaining procedures in the event of a terminal condition. The Will takes effect immediately, hence the term “living” will.
