In 2012 the owner of an estate in Mecklenburg county dies.

Customer Question

In 2012 the owner of an estate in Mecklenburg county dies. In September 2007 a Will was signed, witnessed and notarized but never filed because they were told that it could be filed after that person dies. The Will was not brought up in the current probate process because it was said that the Will was supposed to have been filed before the owner of the estate died. Can this un-filed Will be filed during the current Probate process of this estate ?
