License, Permit, Form Changes for 2011 in Probate Court
“Each year the varied services provided by Probate Court are affected by legislation and regulations and this year is no different,” noted Candler County Probate Judge Tony Thompson. “Some of the changes are minor but customers will benefit from knowing about them”, he added.
With regards to firearms licensing, recent legislation has required that all customers must reapply when their licenses expire. This requires a new background check and eliminates “renewals”. “Licenses are still good for five years and the current total fee is $75. And now that our Probate Court Information System is up to full speed, we have begun sending courtesy reminders to those whose licenses have recently expired or are nearing expiration,” said Thompson.
