Probate is an inherently slow process because there must be time allowed to provide notice to potential heirs or beneficiaries and to provide notice to creditors. You also have to wait for the court to schedule probate proceedings and you need time to identify all estate assets. Creditors must be given a chance to make their claims, and an opportunity must be provided in case anyone wishes to contest a will. However, while the probate process can take many months, a Long Island probate lawyer can help the process to move as quickly as possible.
