Statute of Limitations
I have recently been notified by the Probate Court that some material relating to my Grandmothers estate has never been by filed by the attorney who handled it 25 yrs ago. Affidavits from surviving heirs are not filed and they want me to follow up now. Is there a statute of limitations for these types of matters?

Re: Statute of Limitations
Although I would like to be able to provide a quick and easy answer to your question, there is not enough information to do so. In what City or Town was the estate probated? Who was the executor? Are any of the heirs, the executor or the attorney deceased or otherwise unavailable? Was there a will? Were the assets distributed pursuant to the will or distributed by intestate succession (the law covering inheritance when there is no valid will)?
Feel free to call me at 401-885-7200. If you can provide the above information, perhaps we can determine what your next step should be.
