Charleston County Probate Court Adult Guardianship Assistance and Monitoring Program


Probate Court assists the citizens of Charleston County in probating estates, resolving disputes in estates and trusts, handling involuntary commitments for alcohol/drug abuse and/or mental illness, obtaining marriage licenses, appointing and supervising guardians and conservators, and approving minor and wrongful death settlements. Probate Court includes the Estate, Commitment and Marriage Divisions. The Probate Judge is elected countywide and serves a four-year term.

The Charleston County Probate Court wants every person under guardianship to receive good care. As such, we are training a group of volunteers (primarily students from the Charleston School of Law) to serve as Court Visitors. Efforts are being made to conduct visits in all open guardianship cases. If you are a guardian in an open Probate Court case, a Court Visitor will soon be contacting you to arrange a visit with you and the incapacitated person in the case. The Court Visitor reports back to the Court about the current status of the guardianship. The Court then decides whether further action is appropriate.

Guardianship monitoring helps the court to manage risks, prevent abuse, and increase public confidence in the judicial system. By utilizing trained and supervised volunteers, the Court is extending the monitoring capacity of the court.

If you would like more information about this program, please contact Susan Curran at 843.958.5184.
