Probate in Washington

As a Washingtonian who is set to inherit from someone who has passed away, you probably want to receive your inheritance as fast as possible. But in the United States the probate process takes an average of 17 months. An inheritance advance can get your inheritance money into your hands in just a couple of days, sometimes much faster.

The Probate Process in Washington State

If the case is going through a formal probate process, the court will appoint someone to handle the administration of the estate, i.e. a personal representative or executor. Many times the decedent will already have named the personal representative or executor in his or her will. If not, the court or clerk of the court will appoint someone.

He or she must:

  1. Assemble all the decedents assets;
  2. Pay the bills (funeral expenses, creditors, taxes, and general administration expenses);
  3. Distribute any assets that are left over.

The person named in the will to serve as executor goes to the Superior Court in the county where the deceased person lived and starts the process. The prospective executor files the will, if any, with a document called a Petition for Probate, which contains a request to be formally appointed as executor. The current filing fee for filing both together is $240. (Wash. Rev. Code Ann. § 36.18.020.)

Probate in Washington typically takes six months to a year, depending on some choices the executor makes. It can take much longer if there is a court fight over the will or unusual assets or debts that complicate matters. Unless there is a dispute, it’s mainly a matter of filing paperwork.
