How long does it take to process or have an estate administered on when the deceased died Intestate?
have a great day and looking forward to your response.
RESPONSE: Dear Lucilda,
Thanks for writing in. The information above deals with your query in part. You can apply without an attorney, if you know what to do and have someone with experience to guide you along.
Members of the Legal Wiz team can assist you for nominal fees in preparing your documents and you can rely on an attorney for further guidance as necessary. There is also at least two Legal aid clinics ready to assist you further.
You should be aware that there are fees charged by the government which you must pay.
