About Edgefield County Probate Court...
Judge Peeler strives to maintain a Court that the public can feel comfortable accessing. He and his staff provide help and information with compassion while serving families of decedents.

Along with processing estates, the Probate Court maintains and monitors approximately $20,000,000 in Conservator/Guardianship accounts. The Probate Court has jurisdiction over protective proceedings and guardianship proceedings.

The Probate Court also has jurisdiction to hear and determine issues relating to paternity, common-law marriage, and interpretation of marital agreements in connection with estate, trust, guardianship, and
conservatorship actions pending before it, concurrent with that of the family court.

Probate Court assists in the involuntary commitment process of individuals for alcohol, drug, mental illness and mental retardation and/or tuberculosis and AIDS through preparation of sworn petitions and hearings. Judge Peeler takes this responsibility very seriously and works hard to render knowledgeable and compassionate assistance to the extent that the law allows.

This court also issues marriage licenses and maintains those records from 1911, when South Carolina first began recording them, through the present. Judge Peeler was instrumental in getting these licenses
microfilmed to preserve them for future reference.
