Probate & Estate

When a loved one or relative passes away, a huge question on your mind may be: “What happens now?” From the beginning of the process to the end, navigating the Probate Court can be a confusing endeavor and sometimes subject you to probate litigation, family disputes, or liability from creditors.

Because the Probate Courts in Myrtle Beach, Charleston, and the rest of South Carolina cannot provide legal advice, many individuals often hire estate planning lawyers to help clients administer the estate.

The Basics of

Probate in South Carolina

Probate begins by filing some paperwork with the Probate Court to examine the decedent’s Last Will and Testament (if there is one) and appointing a personal representative to administer the estate.

If there is no Last Will and Testament, different rules govern the appointment of the personal representative. Even in small estates, probate must take place.

Once this Personal Representative of the estate is appointed, you can begin the process of winding up the affairs of the deceased loved one. Most estates in South Carolina take about a year to complete, mainly due to the time where any potential creditors can come forward to demand money.

From the beginning to the end of any particular estate, there are several things to do and numerous laws to consider. No matter the size of the estate, there are important legal requirements each Personal Representative must do to finish. In many circumstances, probate litigation or disputes are inevitable. Whether you are battling a creditor or fighting an unreasonable relative, the lawyers at Coastal Law, LLC can be your advocate and protect your rights.
