What are the time limits for contesting a will?

To contest a will:

  • you must act within two years after the date that the will is probated,
  • if you were a minor when the will was probated, you have until your 20th birthday to act,
  • If you were a servicemember when the will was probated, you typically have until 2 years after termination of service to file a contest, and
  • in cases of fraud there is no formal time limit, as long as you act with reasonable haste after detecting the fraud.
