In a Georgia Wrongful death case, what happens if a deceased person’s spouse cannot be located?

Published September 30, 2018 by Bruce Millar

In a Georgia wrongful death case where the person who died has an estranged husband or wife who cannot be found, it may be possible for the case to be brought by a personal representative appointed by the Court, and any money recovered would be held in trust for the beneficiaries.  If there are minor children, the minor children may need a conservator to bring the action.
