Probate takes a long time, up to a year or longer.
DO NOT message me asking follow ups to your question! That's what the forum "comment" feature is for. I am not your attorney here, and I cannot give you legal advice here. To become your attorney, I need to understand the facts and circumstances of your legal situation and meet you face to face.
Has a probate estate been opened up? You as a beneficiary should be receiving probate paperwork. As Attorney Fisk mentioned, the probate process can take a fair amount of time.
If at some point you feel your questions are not being answered by the estate attorney or executor, you may want to hire legal representation to ensure you receive the distribution your friend wanted you to have.
