What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? CT
How long should it take once an estate has been through probate court for the attorney to distribute the remaining funds from the estate?
Meaning, my mother-in-law passed away in May, her estate went to probate mid June for her checking account, so my wifes name could on the account and close it out. According to the attorney this has been taken care of, etc, and yet the attorney will not return any phone calls, emails, etc. She passed away in May, the only thing that needed probate was her checking account and were in October and still nothing.
What is the normal length of time for something like this to take? Is this something we could have done ourselves without the use of an attorney for close to $1000 and as far as my wife, her 2 brothers and step father are concerned nothing has been done.
