The topic is “Time limits to contest a will in Texcas?”

A will isn’t open to be contested forever. Contesting a will is limited to filing within a certain amount of time – what the law refers to as the statute of limitations.

You may be surprised to learn that the statute of limitations for contesting wills does not start at the time of death, but when the will is admitted to probate.

That means that if you feel a will should be contested, you must act quickly. If you have a meritorious claim but you don’t act quickly, your claim can be lost. This podcast discusses the issues that a person contesting a will must keep in mind. What are the time limits or statute of limitations? When do they start running?

Remember, contesting a will is not about greed. It is doing what is right to make sure that our elderly are not taken advantage of by someone. As tragic as it is, abuse against our elders is on the rise. Whether by caretakers, friends, siblings, or even their own children, we are seeing more and more cases of seniors being abused into revising their will.

The slayer rule doesn’t always apply

The slayer rule means that a person who murders another person cannot inherit from that person. Texas doesn’t have the slayer rule but there are other methods of keeping the slayer from inheriting.
In a recent article in England, the courts let the wife inherit from her husband that she murdered because he had been so abusive toward her.
