“There is a notice provision inside of Florida’s probate code that basically says, ‘If you’re noticed, then you have a very short window—really, 90 days–in order to contest that will.’ If somebody sends you one of these notices under the probate code, you could be limiting your time to contest that will to a 90-day period if that notice is appropriately served on you. You really want to act fast. A lot of times, people who open estates don’t serve that notice properly. Really, there is a variable time for which you may contest a will. You really want to do it very quickly, though. The best time to contest a will is right away before the letters of administration or order admitting the will to probate are admitted.”
