Georgia Probate Courts exercise exclusive, original jurisdiction in the probate of wills, administration of estates, appointment of guardians (minor and adult) and involuntary hospitalization of incapacitated adults and other individuals.
All probate court judges administer oaths of office, issue marriage and firearms licenses; some process United States Passports applications. They may hold habeas corpus hearings or preside over criminal preliminary hearings. Unless a jury trial is requested, probate court judges may also hear certain misdemeanors, traffic cases and violations of state game and fish laws in counties where there is no state court.
All of Georgia’s Standard Probate forms are available from the Probate Court. They can also be downloaded at gaprobate.gov along with the Handbook for Guardians and Conservators of Minors and Adults. Videos for Adult and Minor guardianships and conservatorships can also be viewed on the website.
