South Carolina Will Forms | Last Will and Testament | Living Will

South Carolina will forms are legal documents that are designed for the purpose of guiding individuals who would like to prepare, in advance, for their medical care and planning the distribution of their estate after their death.

The “last will and testament” addresses how the person (Testator) will distribute their estate to their beneficiaries. The document will allow the testator to appoint a person or entity that they trust to divide the property once the testator is deceased. The document is required to be prepared in advance and while the testator is of sound mind. The form will require witnesses and notarization once it’s properly completed.

The “living will” will prepare in advance for a person’s (Principal) arrangements for medical care when they are nearing the end of their life. The form must be completed while the Principal is of sound mind. The document will guide the Principal through the process of establishing a health care agent. When the document becomes effective, when the Principal is no longer able to make their own decisions, the health care agent will make the health care decisions necessary and in accordance with the Principals written instructions. As long as the Principal is of sound mind the document may be changed or revoked any time.
