FAQs for Kentucky 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 Kentucky unique.

1. Can Probate be avoided in Kentucky?

In Kentucky, you can avoid Probate if you set up a trust for all of your assets. If there is no trust or other plans, the estate will enter the probate process in Kentucky which can be a long process.

2. How long does Probate Take in Kentucky?

The probate process in Kentucky 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 Kentucky?

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.
