FAQs for Alabama Probate

Probate laws vary state to state so it is important that you understand the laws in your state.  There are key differences that make dealing with probate in Alabama unique.

1. Can Probate be avoided in Alabama?

In Alabama, you can avoid Probate if you set up a trust or if you own property jointly with someone else which includes the “right of survivorship.” Otherwise, you will most likely have to go through probate when someone passes away.

2. How long does Probate Take in Alabama?

The probate process in Alabama can be frustratingly long. It can take anywhere from 9 months to over 2 years, depending upon the complexity of the estate, the number of heirs, and the speed of the local court administering the case. If the Will is being contested, probate can drag on for even longer – sometimes taking several years. And that was pre-pandemic so now we are seeing more delays. ProbateCash can get you funded long before the probate process is completed.

3. How can I speed up the probate process in Alabama?

Unfortunately, there is no real way to speed up the probate process, as it is required to go through the Courts which are currently backlogged.
