The administration of a probate estate takes a minimum of 4 Months in Oregon. The typical amount of time is closer to 5-7 months depending on the nature of the assets and the backlog at the court house.

I have written about the Probate Process in Oregon and created an Oregon Personal Representative Checklist to help my clients better understand the proceedings. You can also find more information by searching the blog on the right.
