Technically you need to file something within 4 months of probate.

This is a highly technical and tricky area. Under the Decedent Estate's Law you may depose the witnesses and the attorney who prepared and supervised the execution of the will BEFORE filing objections. The expense of transcripts (which can be considerable) is then borne by the estate. If you file your objections before examining these witnesses, the cost is yours.

Consult an expert before proceeding.
