The coronavirus outbreak brought the world to its knees without anyone seeing it coming. No one was left unaffected by it, including schools, hospitals, businesses, and legal institutions.

If you lost a loved one prior to the COVID-19 crisis and were hoping to get your estate settled in the foreseeable future, you can say your hopes goodbye — courthouses are swamped by the backlog of cases that accumulated during the pandemic shutdowns. At this point, there’s no telling how long it will take for the U.S. legal system to get back on track.

Just like everything else in the world right now, cases will have to be prioritized, and the chances are that you’ll wait for your inheritance longer than the standard nine to 24 months. If you are worried that the delay will have a negative impact on your financial situation, we feel you.

How has the pandemic affected probate cases?

The coronavirus pandemic unsettled the whole world and brought everything in it to a halt unexpectedly. Courthouses are no exception — all proceedings were paused during the pandemic shutdowns, and new cases piled up on top of the old ones. 

If you’re looking to settle your estate and receive your inheritance in the months ahead, the chances are that you’ll have to wait for your inheritance substantially longer than that. U.S. Probate Courts are overwhelmed by the probate cases resulting from the immense number of lives lost due to COVID-19 infections and other causes. 

Judicial proceedings are time-consuming — you would usually have to wait for nine to 24 months to get your inheritance under normal circumstances. That is too long as it is, especially when you think about the high funeral costs that were suddenly sprung upon your family and other debts that have to be settled. But factor in the delays brought about by the worldwide pandemic, and there’s really no telling when your probate will be granted.

How does Inheritance Advanced work?

The whole process is fast and easy, unlike petitioning for the probate and getting it granted. There are three steps in total to go through before you receive your inheritance advance:

  1. Application. You will have a free consultation with one of our funding executives who will walk you through the entire process. This is when you can ask any questions you may have and get all the help you need.
  2. Review. We will assess your application to check if you are eligible for an advance on what is rightfully yours. The funding executive will tell you exactly which documents you will need to send to us.
  3. Agreement. Once approved, we will sign a contract with you and wire you your money.

The benefits of getting an advance on your inheritance

While you cannot get the advance on the entire share on your inheritance, with Inheritance Advanced, you can get hold of a substantial sum — anywhere between $5,000 and $500,000 can be in your hands within days.

Apart from that, there are many more benefits to applying for an inheritance advance:
