Atlanta-Area Law Firm Helps Georgians Manage the Probate Process
Dedicated Alpharetta attorney works to enforce decedents’ wishes
Complicated probate matters affect families at the worst possible time and can quickly consume an estate’s relevant assets. As a Georgia probate law firm, James A. Nystrom helps personal representatives prove the authenticity of a will and carry out its instructions. Throughout the Atlanta area, I tailor my probate representation based on each client’s specific needs. Depending on your instructions, I can offer advice when needed as you do most of the work or take a hands-on approach to complete each task. These options give you a substantial measure of control over the probate service fees. My Alpharetta firm also assists in the administration of estates where no will exists. If a surviving spouse or dependents need to obtain sufficient support before an estate is settled, I can petition for that as well. Whether you are seeking to execute a will or are a potential beneficiary who suspects that the filed document is not correct, I will provide the knowledgeable legal support you need.
Skillful guidance for a prompt, accurate distribution of assets
Sometimes referred to as an executor, a personal representative is responsible for filing the will and seeing that its instructions are honored. My firm can assist representatives throughout this entire procedure by managing tasks such as:
- Gathering property — Incomplete records and unexpected deaths can make it difficult to assemble assets and bring them into the estate. With more than three decades of serving probate clients in Georgia, I understand how to locate and transfer different types of property legally.
- Handling taxes and estate obligations — Taxes, debts, and several other types of fees must be paid by the estate during the probate process before any assets can be distributed. I can make sure each payment is made and that detailed documentation exists for each transaction.
- Distributing assets — Prompt handling of an estate minimizes the expense and aggravation involved. I work diligently to effectuate a smooth, accurate property transfer as soon as it is legally authorized.
Probate issues arise at a difficult time and can lead to bitter disputes within families. I provide compassionate counsel that focuses not only on preserving assets, but also the well-being of everyone involved.
