Your Legacy Matters.
A will is legally binding and can designate how your assets and property are divided and left to your loved ones.

Beginning a will as soon as possible can be very helpful. One of the nice things about a will is that you are able to modify it at any time so long as you are mentally competent. You can change it if you have a change in your financial, family, or other circumstances.
If you die without creating a will in Georgia, your estate will be passed down according to intestate laws. If you are married, your spouse will usually inherit your estate if you do not have children or grandchildren. If you die with a spouse and children, then they will divide your estate equally. If you do not have a spouse or children, then your estate may pass on to your parents, siblings, or other relatives next in line to inherit according to the law.
If you have no heirs, then the estate may be transferred to board of education in the county that your estate was filed.
