§ 6-102. Time for disposition of probate cases.

   Final disposition of probate cases should be within 1 year from filing except when a federal estate tax return is required, and in that event 18 months. A longer interval may be approved where deemed necessary because of extraordinary eventualities, such as exceptionally complicated discovery, stabilization or injury in personal injury cases, or settlement of financial affairs in complex cases.
