This estate has no assets.
If a Georgia decedent's Will is not going to be filed for probate because there are no probate assets, then the person who is in possession of the original Will (which may or may not be the nominated Executor) must file the original Will for informational purposes with the probate court of the county where the decedent had his or her principal residence. That filing must happen within a "reasonable time" after the decedent's death. There's not a hard-and-fast number or set rule regarding what is a "reasonable time." However, if after 3 to 6 months it still appears that there is nothing for which a probate is required, it is likely reasonable to file the Will for informational purposes at that time. It is also likely NOT reasonable to hold onto the Will and not file it for more than 1 year after the decedent's death.
If the original Will IS filed for informational purposes only because there are believed to be no probate assets, but a probate asset later shows up, a Petition to Probate the Will can still be filed at that time. The petitioner would just need to explain in the Petition that the Will was previously filed for informational purposes instead of including the original Will with the Petition to Probate. There's very little risk in filing the original Will sooner rather than later.
Whoever has the Will, however, should ensure that he or she makes a complete copy of the Will and keeps that copy handy, just in case a probate is needed or a question ever comes up.
