Time Limits

The time limits or what lawyers call the statute of limitations for contesting a will is determined by reference to the date the will was admitted to probate. Click on “admitted” to learn what that means.

Time to File

A will can be filed for probate anytime within fours years of the death of the testator.  The date of death is not the date that the statute of limitations starts to run. It is doesn’t start to run when the will is first filed for probate. The statute of limitations doesn’t start until the will is admitted to probate. A person then has two years after the will has been admitted to probate to file a will contest.

Contesting a will in Texas

Zoom type workshops?

In the age of Covid-19. we have been thinking of having monthly or bi-monthly, free, Zoom type workshops where participants discuss with us issues that are of interest to them. There would be no agenda, we would discuss areas that the participants wanted to discuss. Participants could attend by computer, tablet or smartphone.

This would be a public Zoom type meeting so nothing personal or confidential should be discussed. Just general questions. Personal or confidential questions should be asked by using the Contact Us tab above.

If you think we should start having these workshops, please leave your email so we can notify you?

We will notify you if we decide there is interest in the workshops. Thanks for letting us know.
