    Default Why Would Heirs Wait for Years Without Going Through Probate

    My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Texas.

    A friend of mine Father passed away a little over 4 years ago. My friend and his Father did not get along very well. My friends son whom he also does not get along with moved into the Grandfathers home a few years before the passing. A will if there is one has not been probated. The home is still in the deceased name. For some reason my friend will not go and confront his son as to what is going on. He has contacted a lawyer and said it would be wise to wait a few more months to start any legal action. That would make it over 4 and a half years. Is this normal?

    Some of the things mentioned in your post are, in my subjective opinion, normal and some are not. What difference does it make if any of it is or isn't "normal" or whether anonymous strangers on the internet think it is or isn't "normal"?

    The lawyer certainly knows more about the issue than anyone here is going to know and most likely knows more about than you do.
