FAQs for Oregon 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 Oregon unique.

1. Can Probate be avoided in Oregon?

In Oregon, 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 Oregon, which can be a long process.


2. How long does Probate Take in Oregon?

The probate process in Oregon 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.
