Delays during the probate process

The probate process can be challenging for a multitude of reasons. First of all, many people in Detroit and across the entire state of Michigan struggle with overwhelming emotional pain following their loved one’s death. Aside from emotional concerns, there are many other issues that can arise which can hold up the probate process. For example, a bitter and lengthy dispute may interfere with the way in which an estate is handled. These disputes can sometimes lead to litigation, which can be tough for various reasons, and there are other factors that can cause significant delays.

Sometimes, people pass away and leave behind incredibly rare and valuable assets. For example, these assets can be difficult to appraise and this can lead to significant delays. As mentioned above, probate disputes are a common source of disagreement and disputes involving beneficiaries can cause the entire probate process to be drawn out much longer. Whether you are a beneficiary who believes that your rights have not been respected or you have been falsely accused of mismanaging an estate, it is pivotal to address these matters swiftly and appropriately.

The probate process can also be complex when many beneficiaries are involved. Even if everything moves forward smoothly with each beneficiary, it can take time for every individual to send documents back. These are just some of the reasons why delays during the probate process occur, and our law firm knows how overwhelming it can be for everyone who is involved to work through estate issues.
