The probate process in Florida 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.

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.

The experienced professionals at ProbateCash can guide you through the process making it easy to get the money you need as quickly as the same day.
