If you’re involved with a contested estate in California, you might ask, “How long can I expect a contested estate in California to last?!” They can seem to last forever. Generally speaking, California attorneys tell us that contested estates in California last from anywhere between six months and two years. Luckily, the drive to fight often subsides as the death of the loved one goes on. Sometimes the fight fizzles because of lack of time, sometimes exhaustion, sometimes drained finances. Generally speaking, when a family feud fuels the contested estate, the litigation lasts longer.
When the interested parties and their lawyers remain reasonable, contested estates often get wrapped up after just several months. Similarly, mediated disputed resolve more quickly. Most California contested estates end up with cases settled prior to a trial. Obviously the timing depends on the sheer will of those involved. It also depends on the size of the assets, the complexity of the disputes, how many parties are involved and how much money people have to invest in the contested estate.
