How long after someone dies can it take to sort the will etc out?
Can anyone tell me roughly how long after someone dies it can take to sort the will etc out. My grandad died a year ago in the uk but apparently his lawyer etc was all in America (it’s where he had lived for years). His step daughter (adopted by his 2nd wife and her deceased 1st husband) is handling it all but it’s been a year since he died and no one has heard anything but we were all apparently in his will
