The answer varies for each estate. The most important factors are often how many personal representatives and beneficiaries are involved and what type of assets does the estate hold? The more personal representatives and beneficiaries, the more likely there is to be a dispute and or a lengthy court process. Generally, most probates that our law firm helps to administer are closed within 6 to 12 months.
