Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Can a will be contested 14 years after proceeds were distributed?
No, that is well past the 120 day limit from when the will is admitted to probate for it to be contested. So there is no legal way to contest a will that old once it has been probated and the estate assets distributed and the estate closed.
Someone who wants to contest a will has to do so in a timely manner or they lose that right.
