Understanding the Ohio Probate Timeline

By Xavier W. Staggs of Jenkins Fenstermaker, PLLC on 07/13/2021

When someone passes away, it may seem like property and finances follow an immediate flow directly to the surviving relatives as inheritance. There are several steps, however, as part of the Ohio probate timeline that must take place before receiving inheritance. This process can be wrapped up quickly or may take place over a year or more depending on the complexity of the estate. The easiest way to navigate the probate process is to find a southern Ohio probate attorney who is familiar with the timelines and can help guide you through the processes as quickly as possible.

Some of the restaurant COVID solutions that were adopted to keep businesses afloat and ensure public health and safety—from new services to improved technology—are likely to stick around as consumers and restaurant operators realize new value and opportunities.

After someone passes away, their belongings, financial accounts, business holdings, and real property must be distributed through a legal process.
