The Act changes existing law to allow probate judges in all Georgia counties to appoint assistant county administrators, regardless of the county's population. The Act makes changes to the new Georgia Probate Code, which was enacted by the 1996 General Assembly. Because the 1996 Code Revision was so extensive and important, it provided for a delayed effective date of January 1, 1998. The purpose behind the delay in implementation was to allow time for the legal community and other interested parties to analyze, make comments, and suggest changes to the new Probate Code. The Act makes various changes to improve and refine the implementation of the 1996 Georgia Probate Code before the Code takes effect.
