When a loved one passes away, often calling an attorney is the furthest thing from everyone’s mind. Unfortunately, when the dust settles, many people discover that hiring an attorney is necessary to resolve their loved one’s estate.
Once a loved one has passed, the surviving family members must address the distribution of his/her assets. Depending on a number of different factors, an estate in Washington may be quickly administered and assets distributed within a reasonable timeframe, or on the other hand, if distribution requires initiating probate, the distribution may take anywhere from several months to several years.
