When most people begin the probate process, the first question they ask is How long is the probate process going to take?
The length of the probate process will vary from case to case; but, it will take a minimum of six to nine months. The process can be started immediately after the settlor passes away.
The timeline of the probate process is also determined by other factors such as: 1) Does the estate include property that needs to be sold or 2) Are there any complicated tax issues or 3) Is anyone going to contest the will, etc.
If there are not any unusual issues during the probate process, the case can be completed within a normal timeline. But, if you do have issues it is always best to contact a probate attorney to make sure everything is being dealt with properly.
Just remember, every case is different and they will all take a different amount of time depending on the circumstances.
