Form: Affidavit When Will is not Self-Proved and Witnesses Cannot Be Located

What happens if the witnesses are deceased or cannot be located? The law allows (O.C.G.A. § 53-5-24) someone familiar with the decedent’s handwriting to submit an affidavit that he or she has examined the Will and that the signature on the Will appears to be the decedent’s.
