A relative in Georgia recently died . We could not find the signed original will . The copy of the will we found was the lawyer's file copy that shows who signed and witnessed the signing of the will in 1994 . This lawyer also drafted the will and is still available . We also have two later codicils which are originals (properly signed and witnessed ) prepared by the same lawyer . We also have an original signed Third codicil which was prepared by another 4 years ago. This lawyer and witnesses for the 3 codicil are available too . I believe that of the codicils ref3renced the prior documents .
Can this will be validated in GA to avoid and intestate situation ? I would like to know what the process in GA is before I meet with a lawyer . Which of the two lawyers would be better to handle this situation . - Thanks
