GPCSF 3  Eff. July 2013
Required: Provide sufficient factual information to enable the Court to conclude that all
of the heirs of the decedent are included and that there are no heirs of similar or higher degree
according to O.C.G.A. §53-2-1. Provide the names of any deceased heirs and include the date of
death for each. (See instructions for further clarification.) Also, state here all pertinent facts
which may govern the method of giving notice to any party and which may determine whether or
not a guardian ad litem should be appointed for any party. If any heirs listed above are cousins,
grandchildren, nephews or nieces of the decedent, indicate the deceased ancestor through whom
they are related to the decedent.
Under the law, it is necessary that said estate be administered and
should be appointed Administrator(s) by reason of:
(a) being unanimously selected by all the heirs. (This alternative does not apply if
the surviving spouse is the sole heir and an action for divorce or separate
maintenance was pending at the time of decedent’s death);
(b) being the surviving spouse where no action for divorce or separate maintenance
was pending at the time of decedent’s death;
(c) being (an) heir(s) and not the surviving spouse;
(d) having been selected by a majority in interest of the heirs;
(e) being (an) eligible person(s) as defined by O.C.G.A. §53-6-1;
(f) being (a) creditor(s) of the decedent (evidence of the indebtedness is attached);
(g) being the county administrator.
To the knowledge of the petitioner(s), no other proceedings with respect to this estate are
pending, or have been completed, in any other probate court in this or any other state.
