Intestate Estate:

estatesno-willA person who dies and has no will is said to have died intestate, which means without a will. In most cases involving an intestate estate, the probate court will need to appoint an administrator to handle the property that the decedent owned. If your loved one died intestate, you may file to be appointed as the administrator of his or her estate in the probate court of the county where he or she was domiciled at the time of his or her death. If your loved one was not domiciled in Georgia at the time of his or her death, you may file to administer the estate in any Georgia county where he or she owned property.
