THE INSIGHT YOU NEED AT ALL STAGES OF THE PROBATE PROCESS
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.
