The Estate Division handles the probate of wills, estates of deceased persons, and conservators for minors. The Mental Health Division handles the involuntary commitment of the mentally ill, alcoholics and drug addicts, and also appoints and manages guardians and conservators for adults adjudicated as incapacitated. Probate Court also issues Marriage Licenses.
Spartanburg County Probate Court has resumed handling matters in-person. As we return to handling more in-person business, please understand that we are still working through a large backlog of appointments due to increased deaths and longer wait times caused in part by individuals postponing handling estate affairs amidst the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. As we work to best serve you, it is extremely important to keep your appointments once scheduled because of limited availability and increased caseloads.
Our research room is open to the public and does not require an appointment at this time.
