Many people who have navigated through the probate system for a loved one who died without a will, or with a badly outdated will, can confirm that the process can be as stressful as any horror movie.

It’s important that everyone have a will and that the will is updated periodically so that your loved ones are not left with a waking nightmare when your life is over.

There will be a workshop on that very topic at the Cobb Senior Wellness Center at 1150 Powder Springs St, Marietta, GA 30064 on Wednesday, Oct. 13 10:30 am -11:30 am .

Registration is required, and you can get further information by phoning 770-528-5355.

Attendance is limited to 24 people.

According to the announcement on the Cobb Public Services web page:

Nelson Elder Care Law will discuss the importance of having a will, as well as the importance of giving your will a “tune-up” if it’s over ten years old or if you have recently moved to Georgia. Probate horror stories and how to avoid one will also be discussed.
