How long does it take to get the executors approved by the courts

Hi a family member passed away last year and had NO WILL. So a family member from both sides of his family agree to be executors. So the rest of the family had to sign a consent for this to move on. We all signed it then it had to go to a court to be approved. It has been several months now and we have heard nothing. My question is what is the normal timeline to get it approved by the courts so the executors can get the estate worked out and the family gets what is coming to them ??

some jurisdictions are slow, 30 days is enough.
you can also file an application to appear before a judge to make it faster.
