South Carolina Probate is the legal court process of settling the estate of the deceased.
Probating a decedent's estate involves a number of steps to ensure that the decedent's wishes are carried out and the title of property passes to the intended heirs.
Once the executor or personal representative is appointed by the S. Probate Court, the estate administration process begins.
As always, it is prudent to obtain competent South Carolina estate attorney even for a modest estate especially if there are a number of heirs or real estate.
The probate court can provide you with the necessary forms but they cannot give you any legal advice.
