What is probate?
After a person dies, their belongings must be legally transferred to the persons named in their Will. If the deceased did not have a Will, the intestacy laws of South Carolina will control the distribution of assets. This process is referred to as probate. And the Probate Court will oversee this process, requiring many forms and filings, and sometimes court hearings.
The executor/personal representative of the estate is typically appointed in the Will, but if not, the Court can appoint the appropriate person. This person administers the estate and handles probate proceedings.
In short, probate can be complicated and involves many steps and court hearings. A probate attorney can handle this entire process for you.
