Probate Process In California as Example
It can be a very difficult time for surviving loved ones after someone passes away. In addition to obvious emotional issues, the logistics of handling the person’s assets and possessions can be daunting. This is precisely the reason estates enter the California probate process. In California, the role of probate is to account for and collect a deceased person’s assets and belongings into a single estate, determine the rightful heirs, and finally fairly distribute the assets to these heirs. With few exceptions, all estates in California must go through this formal court process.
Delays To Your Inheritance In California
The major problem with the California probate process is that it’s bogged down with delays at every turn. Most heirs don’t realize just how long it will be until they receive their inheritance in California. In fact, the average time it takes for heirs to receive their inheritance in the USA is a full year and a half according to a national study.
A major factor leading to inheritance delays in California is under-funding and over-crowding of the state probate courts. There are just 58 county courts to serve over 38 million people in California – just under 13% of the US population. Just getting a court date to open a probate case can take many months. Add in the delays of selling real estate, settling creditor’s claims, etc. and it can take 2 years or more for rightful heirs to see any of their inheritance in California.

Getting Your Inheritance Cash Advance
Inheritance Cash Advances Vs. Probate Loans
Our Investor offers inheritance cash advances to heirs such as yourself whose money is trapped in the lengthy probate court process. Our cash advances are not loans, providing several advantages to you. Unlike traditional lenders and banks, we never charge an interest rate, there are no monthly payments, and there’s no need to risk losing collateral assets such as your car or home. Your employment history and credit score won’t impact your eligibility either.
In order to qualify for inheritance cash advance, all we ask is that you’re an heir to an estate currently going through probate and that you will be receiving at least $50,000 when the estate closes. As long as that’s the case, we can usually send you a portion of your inheritance right away. In return, you assign a set dollar amount to our company and we wait for the probate estate to close. We even offer significant rebates if we are paid back earlier than originally planned.
Fast And Easy Cash From Probate
When applying for an inheritance cash advance, you can expect to receive funds in as little as three days. Our Investor will work closely with you and your attorney and be available by phone and email throughout the entire process.
Understanding The Probate Process
What Is Probate?
Simply put, probate is a court-supervised process that oversees the transfer of an individual’s assets (i.e. their “estate”) after death. Probate is a complex, tedious, and time-consuming process that is riddled with delays. Heirs almost always underestimate the amount of time it will take for them to receive their inheritance from an estate in probate. On top of the delays, there is often lack of clarity on how the process works.
As an heir, here are some facts that you should immediately understand regarding your role in the probate and inheritance process:
How Does The Probate Process Work?
Once again, all estates go through the probate process slightly differently. This breakdown is meant to showcase a fairly “regular” probate procedure.
The very first step in the probate process is to file the petition for probate. This petition, along with the original will and codicils (legal alterations to the will) are filed with the probate court. The Notice of Petition to Administer Estate is also filed during this stage. In this case, the “petitioner” is usually the proposed personal representative.
Once these forms have been filed, the court clerk will set a hearing for 45-60 days after the filing date. It is at this point that notice has to be given to all of the people named in the will. This is the stage at which you will first receive notice of your inheritance. The Notice of Petition to Administer Estate is also published in a local newspaper to alert the decedent’s creditors. It is during this time that they must file their claims with the court.
At the hearing, if no one has filed an objection to the probate, the court will admit the will to probate and appoint the PR. After this appointment, the court will issue Letters Testamentary or Letters of Administration which are used by the PR to prove that they have the authority to act on behalf of the estate.
The second step in the probate process consists of an ongoing process of filings, notifications and applicable settlements. The following is just a short list of tasks which must be completed:
As you can tell, the probate process is indeed a long and difficult process. The good news is that the personal representative chose to retain a probate attorney to guide the estate through this complicated process. The bad news is that, even with the help of an attorney, the probate process can still take 12-18 months and in many cases even longer.
Can I Access My Money Today?
While some estates can be administered in 18 months or less, a large percentage of estates can take up to 3 years to close. This means that the estate heirs may not receive any inheritance money for up to 3 years after probate first begins.
If you would like to access your inheritance money right away, we can help you get money in as little as 3 days. We provide cash advances to heirs who have an inheritance stuck in probate. If you are interested in learning more about our cash advance please contact us.
What exactly is an Inheritance Cash Advance?
The inheritance process in the United States takes an average of 17 months to distribute funds to the rightful heirs. An inheritance cash advance allows heirs to access their inheritance immediately when the estate opens rather than waiting for it to close.
Are there any risks or fees associated with applying?
No! There is absolutely no cost or obligation associated with applying for an advance. Consult with us to discuss your inheritance, the estate, pricing, timelines, etc. all for no charge.
Who is eligible to receive a cash advance from our Asset Management/Investor/Financial Firm (“Investor”)?
Any heir inheriting at least $50,000 from a probate estate which is already open (or is in the process of being opened) is qualified for a probate advance. If you aren’t sure how much you are receiving or if you’re receiving a bit less than $50,000, feel free to still call us for a free consultation.
Does the advance affect other heirs in the estate?
No! This is understandably a common question for many of our clients. Our transactions are strictly between our Investor and the specific heir who received the advance. The estate as a whole and the other heirs’ share are never affected by our advances. When the estate is ready to distribute, if there isn’t enough for our Investor to be paid in full out of our client’s specific share, we simply take the loss.
Are there minimums and maximums for cash advanced by our Investor to an heir?
Generally, our Investor’s advances range from $50,000 to $1,000,000. As a general estimation, assume the advance cannot exceed 30% of an heir’s expected distribution from the probate estate.
How much does it cost to get an inheritance advance?
The cost involved with an advance is dependent on a number of specific factors such as the amount of time until the estate will be closed, complexity of the estate, size of the advance, etc. With every advance we offer, we guarantee you will receive the lowest price available. We also offer substantial rebates for early repayment.
What does our Investor receive in return for the inheritance cash advance?
In return for immediate cash advance from our Investor, the heir sells (i.e. “assigns”) to our Investor a fixed amount out of the heir’s eventual share of the probate estate. This fixed amount (i.e. the “assignment amount”) is clearly laid out in the contract and agreed upon before the advance is ever paid.
When does our Investor get paid?
Our Investor is paid directly from the estate upon distribution. The remainder of our client’s inheritance is distributed directly to them. In other words, our clients never directly make, nor are they personally responsible for, any payments to our Investor.
Do you offer rebates if my advance is paid back earlier than expected?
Yes! We build substantial rebates into the pricing of our inheritance advances in order to give our clients the best price possible. If we receive payment in full before the Early Pay-off Rebate (EPOR) date, we’ll send you the rebate amount within 5 business days.
Are monthly payments required to repay the advance?
No. our Investor is paid directly and in full from the probate estate at the time of distribution.
Will credit problems prevent someone from getting an heir advance?
No! A poor credit record, including delinquencies, discharges in bankruptcy, foreclosures, etc., will not prevent an heir from receiving an advance. Our Investor may still obtain a credit report in preparing a case for funding, but primarily to determine if there are judgments, child support or bankruptcy proceedings that may affect the eventual payment of the assignment.
What if there are insufficient funds in the probate estate at the time of distribution to pay our Investor?
This is one of the major risks our Investor assumes when it advances inheritance cash to an heir. If an heir gives accurate information on their application and honors the assignment agreement, they have no personal liability for payment of the advance.
What happens if a previously unknown creditor makes a claim on the probate estate?
This is another risk that our Investor takes away from the heir. If there are insufficient assets at the end of the probate to cover the amount of the assignment, our Investor simply takes the loss. The heir is not liable to pay back the assignment unless, of course, the heir was aware of the claim(s) and failed to tell our Investor about it in the application process.
What happens if the distribution of the probate estate is delayed?
Our Investor must wait until the probate estate is ready to distribute. There is no recourse to the funded heir for any delays in the distribution. The assignment does not accrue interest or become more expensive. No matter how long the distribution is delayed, our client’s flat fee will never increase! On the other hand, we offer significant discounts if we are paid back earlier than anticipated.
Are there any geographic limitations on funding?
Our Investor works with heirs to estates in every state in the US. We do not work with estates outside of the US.
What if the heir lives in a different state than where the probate estate is open?
It is common for the heirs of a probate estate to reside in a state different from where the estate is going through probate. This is not a problem at all! We routinely work with estates in counties all over the country. We also work closely with county probate courts and probate attorneys all across the United States.
