Probate Law Attorneys in Beaufort, SC

Probate Court handles a variety of cases. It has jurisdiction over the estates of deceased persons, as well as conservatorships and guardianships over minors and incompetent adults. It also has province over marriages. Probating an estate in court with real property avoids the pitfalls associated with heirs’ property.

A Last Will and Testament is an important document to have prior to your death. You can decide which loved one, whether a family or not, gets land, precious jewelry, or a sentimental car that you own. Without a Will, your property goes to your heirs jointly. Therefore, the division of this property may bring about hurt feelings during a very emotional time, as there may be no agreement between the heirs as to how to divide the property.
