How long does the estate administration process take?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Each estate is unique, the amount of time to administer an estate depends upon whether there are objections to the Will or appointment of the Executor, the time necessary to locate and notify beneficiaries and other interested parties, whether sufficient assets are available to pay debts or if it is necessary to negotiate with creditors, and if an estate tax return is necessary, when the estate receives a closing letter indicating no additional estate tax is due.
