What are the time limitations regarding Probate?

The death of a loved one is very emotional, heart-breaking, and stressful. There is no set time frame in which a will must be probated or an estate administered. It is recommended the initial steps in the estate process start within 30 days after death. For questions, call your attorney or the Circuit Court Clerk's Office Probate Division.
