No. Probate law is different in every state. If you start poking around the internet for information, (which presumably you are because you ended up here) make sure you are getting information relevant to the right state. Just because you helped with someone’s estate in Florida, or they do it a certain way in California, doesn’t mean the same rules apply here in South Carolina.
