My mother is on hospice and is expected to pass soon. She has no will, my father is dead and I am her only child. She has one sister alive who I am estrange from. She has a small apartment with basic household stuff in it, nothing valuable. She has a checking account with little money in it. She has already titled her car to me before she got sick.
I have been told that I have to file her estate with the probate court, wait to be assigned the administrator and then go from there. But there is nothing to distribute. In GA, I am entitled to everything anyhow being her only living child.
What if she and\or I don't have the money to hire an attorney and file the will with probate? Are there legal ramifications for me not doing so? What will happen to me?
