There are a number of state-specific forms you may need when going through the probate process.

General Forms

In Georgia, each county has a local probate court. If you are using EstateExec and you enter the decedent's county of legal residence on the Decedent tab, you will see a direct link to the appropriate court here, usually with more detailed information about the court than the limited search link in the preceding sentence.

You can check with your local court for the forms they might prefer, and below you will find some of the more common GA forms:

  1. Petition to Probate Will in Common Form (Form GPCSF-4) - Get the probate process started when there is a will (also includes Certificate of Notice and other forms)
  2. Petition for Letters of Administration (Form GPCSF-3) - Get the probate process started when there is NO will (also includes Petition Notice, Certificate of Notice, and other forms)
  3. Request Waiver of Bond (Form GPCSF-32) - Request permission to opt out of obtaining an executor bond
  4. Petition for Family Support (Form GPCSF-10) - Request permission provide support to surviving family from estate funds
  5. Inventory (Cherokee County) - There is no statewide form for inventory; consider attaching the EstateExec Inventory Report
  6. Permission to Sell Property (Form GPCSF-13) - Request permission from court to sell something
  7. Petition for Discharge (Form GPCSF-33) - Inform court that estate has been settled and you are done

See GA Probate Forms for a more complete list of forms that may be required in certain situations.

Small Estates

Small estates sometimes need only 1 specialized form or affidavit: see Small GA Estates.
