What do you mean by "what is the time frame"?

How long after a person dies, does the family have to file the estate in probate?

I don't think OK has a time limit but it should be done as soon as possible.

The OK probate rules are at and none of those set a specific time. Many states don't have a time limit and those that do it is generally two years at the very least.

As to the other questions any "interested party" can petition to admit the will. That would include any heir or potential heir, which includes the grandchildren.
