How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
In Georgia, there is a statute of limitations put in place that dictates how long a claim can be filed following the death of an individual. Under the law, you will have up to two years from the date of death to file a claim—if you try to file outside of this time limit, the court may not consider your case. If there are criminal charges involved in the case, the statute of limitations may be extended until after the criminal case has been resolved. There are also other circumstances that may impact this time period.
