Did You Lose A Loved One In Horry County Or Georgetown County, South Carolina?

Probate is the formal process of administering a deceased person's estate. During this process, all claims and debts against the estate will be resolved and the deceased's property will be distributed.

If the deceased has an estate plan, distributions of property will be made according to the estate documents. However, if no estate plan exists, property will be distributed via South Carolina's intestacy laws.
