Alan Medlin (South Carolina Law Review) has recently published The South Carolina Probate Code Patched and Refurbished: Version 2013, (December 17, 2013). South Carolina Law Review, Vol. 65, 2013. Provided below is the introduction:
The enactment of the South Carolina Probate Code (SCPC), effective July 1, 1987, and the South Carolina Trust Code (SCTC), effective January 1, 2006, pervasively impacted the substantive law of will and trusts, as well as the administration of trusts and decedents' estates in South Carolina.
As part of an ongoing process to revamp and improve the SCPC, the South Carolina General Assembly, after extensive study, enacted omnibus legislation in 2013 - effective January 1, 2014 - that augmented, amended and clarified the existing SCPC. The Article discusses the most significant provisions of the 2013 amendments to the SCPC.
