Since implementing her quarterly Probate Process Workshops in 2016, Kershaw County Probate Judge Debbie Branham has seen workshop attendance continue to rise resulting in a packed room at her latest workshop on February 3rd. “My office and I are excited to see our quarterly Probate Process Workshops growing,” stated Judge Branham. “Due to its popularity, we completely filled our February workshop and had to pre-register individuals for our upcoming workshop on April 7th.”

Free and open to the public, the workshops are designed for individuals currently probating an estate or for those who would like to know what to expect when a loved one has passed. “My hope is that from these workshops the attendees have a better understanding of the process, the forms used during the process, and are inspired to make their own estate plan.”

At each workshop, Judge Branham requests the help of an attorney from the local bar to handle questions from the audience that could be considered legal advice.  In the past, attorneys Charles B. Baxley and Roderick M. Todd, Jr. have assisted Judge Branham with the workshops.  “I cannot express my appreciation enough to both attorneys who continue to give their time away from their practices to help with the workshops.  Mr. Baxley and Mr. Todd have been so accommodating and the attendees value their input.”

The Kershaw County Probate Court will hold the next quarterly Probate Process Workshop on Friday, April 7th from 9:00am-12:00pm. To reserve your seat, please contact The Kershaw County Probate Court at 803-425-1503 or at ashley.wheeler@kershaw.sc.gov.
