When someone we care about passes away and leaves behind assets, their estate must be settled. This process is known as probate and while most people want the process to be done ASAP, probate can take anywhere from 18 and 24 months. It’s no surprise that this time delay can cause a great deal of stress and frustration.
Here are the 5 most common reasons a probate case will likely take a long time to settle:
Simply Put, Avoiding Probate with a Trust Is The Better Option
Simply put, having assets in a trust is typically the better planning option. Administration generally only takes six to eight months total – meaning that the process is not tied up in court, beneficiaries get assets faster, costs are reduced, and stress levels are kept to a minimum.
