Estate Administration

Millender Elder Law LLC is committed to helping South Carolina individuals and families through the Estate Administration process.

When a South Carolina resident passes away their will is administered through a court-supervised process for distributing the individually owned assets of a deceased person. This is called the Probate process or Estate Administration.

Administering an estate is complex and typically includes creating an inventory and appraising the assets. In addition, the executor of the estate is responsible for following the instructions written in the Will and accounting for all transactions and expenses, notifying appropriate governmental agencies, filing final income tax returns, dealing with any creditors of the estate, and distributing the estate assets to beneficiaries. If a person does not leave a Will, the assets are distributed to the deceased person’s heirs as determined by state law. When an estate is administered through the probate process, the executor will be required to follow court proceedings, file documents and records, and meet court appointed deadlines.

Probate in South Carolina can be complex and the persons named as executor(s) of the estate may need competent and experienced counsel to guide them through the process and help them make wise decisions. Contact us today to learn how Millender Elder Law LLC can help you through the Estate Administration process.
