“Thinking of an Appeal? Think Carefully!” By Nick Booth

In almost every case that reaches a judge, one side will leave the courtroom unhappy with the outcome.  While this is often not due to any wrongdoing on the judge or attorneys’ end, sometimes a judgment is handed down that fails to consider key evidence or relies on faulty legal precedent.  In such cases, an appeal may be an appropriate option to consider.  However, there are numerous different types of appeals depending on the nature of the case and judgment entered, and each comes rife with its own set of procedural “traps for the unwary” that can keep your appeal from moving forward. The timeline for filing an appeal starts the moment the judgment is filed, and it is extremely important for the appealing party to understand the type of appeal that they are dealing with, and have a comprehensive grasp of the appellate rules to follow to ensure that their appeal is not dismissed for failure to follow the proper procedures.

“I Can’t Find The Will! What To Do If The Will Is Lost” by Leslee Hungerford

Many times, the original will of a decedent cannot be located. However, an estate can still be probated even in the absence of the original will. In Georgia, if a will cannot be found there is a presumption that it was revoked by the testator (the individual who executed the will). This presumption may be overcome and a copy of the original will can be admitted to probate. Overcoming the presumption of revocation may be achieved by showing that the will was destroyed or lost after the testator died. The individual offering the copy of the Will may offer circumstantial or direct evidence to rebut the presumption that the will was revoked. Testimony from individuals who witnessed the execution of the original will are most helpful in this endeavor.
