Frequently Asked Questions about probate and estate administration
Probate is the word normally used to describe the legal and financial processes involved in dealing with the property, money and possessions of a person who has died.
It can take a while to wind up your estate and distribute your assets upon your passing.
You can expect the process to take 8 to 12 months but it can even take two years or more to settle the estate.
There are various means of avoiding probate, including:
- A Living Trust
- Name beneficiaries on your retirement and bank accounts.
- Hold property jointly.
