It sometimes depends a bit on the facts.
Is this a Claim by a spouse?
What is the Claim about?
Has there been an application for probate?
hello Debra, You answered a previous related question about my grandmother and my aunt and uncle creating a will 12 years ago.
This would be a claim made by me the grandson.
I do not know if an application was made for probate. I did not find any file for probate for my grandmother on the government files/web site.
This would be a claim made against the estate for services rendered by myself by living with her for 2 1/2 years, based on her promises of giving me a share of her house and me living with her and caring for her. I think that is what you advised me yesterday, I just wanted to know what the time frame was I had to decide if I wanted to persue this matter. Thanks.
It has only been 3 months since my grandmother died. I have heard conflicting time limits on contesting a will or making a claim against the estate of a deceased person.
I have heard that the limit is 3 months also I heard 6 months and finally 2 years.
I would think that somewhere there is a definite time limit stated in Ontario law.
Is there a place on-line that I can go to look up Ontario laws pertaining to this matter?
Thanks again, I'll reveiw this info and get a lawyer.
