Some questions customers ask

How do I get started?

Getting started is simple. Give us a call at 678.809.4922 or fill out the contact form by clicking here. Then we will set a free consultation for you and mail you a Welcome Packet that will explain a little bit about our Firm, have an Estate Planning Questionnaire for you to complete, and a worksheet that describes our range of fees.

What is included in an essential estate plan? 

An essential estate plan should include a Last Will and Testament, a Financial Power of Attorney, and an Advance Directive for Health Care. For a more sophisticated estate plan, it will include a Revocable Living Trust so your family can avoid probate when you pass away.

What happens if I pass away without a Last Will and Testament?

Well, if you have minor children, it's possible that a complete stranger (the Probate Judge) will decide who raises your children. With regard to your possessions, the Probate Court will distribute those possessions according to an old system of family hierarchies and will most likely not be the way you would have distributed those possessions.

Does Georgia have an estate tax?

No. Georgia does not have an estate tax or an inheritance tax. However, there is a federal estate tax some people should monitor and the tax laws in Georgia could change over time.
