Greenville Estate Planning Attorney

In its simplest form, estate administration, otherwise known as probate, is a multi-step process in which the Clerk of Superior Court oversees the identification of assets of the deceased; the identification of creditors of the deceased; payment of the deceased’s bills; and the distribution of assets of the deceased to the beneficiaries. This process may take anywhere from several months to several years to complete, depending on the nature and complexity of the assets of the deceased. However, options exist for an abbreviated process in some smaller estates.
