Probate can be tied up in Probate Court on an average 18 to 24 months.
Probate is a legal process that takes place through a Probate Court. The purpose of probate is to ensure that property belonging to a deceased person is properly distributed according to the decedent's will and state laws.
Probate is also initiated when the decedent does not have a living trust. When a person dies without living instruction as to how they would like their property distributed, the Probate Court assumes jurisdiction over the property and has final authority over its distribution.
When an individual's estate enters into the probate process it can take several months, or even years, before the case is settled. During this time the estate will incur substantial court and attorney costs which can place a heavy financial burden upon the family. In some cases, these fees add up to more than the estate is worth. When this occurs the Probate Court orders the sale of all property in order to recuperate legal fees and court expenses, leaving the family with nothing but added financial burden.
