Q. How long will it take for me to get my inheritance?
A. On average, estates take eighteen to twenty-four months before the inheritance is distributed. However, there are several factors that have a profound effect upon this process. For example, if an estate includes real estate, depending on the market, it could take several years to attain a reasonable price for that property. We cannot control when the real estate will sell. Some states actively pursue the money in estates with missing or unknown heirs. These states often put an unreasonable burden of proof on us, hoping we will give up and close our file. Rest assured, we will do everything in our power to overcome these obstacles and supplement our proof in every manner necessary. We maintain contact, allowing you to follow the progress of your case.
