Dear Sir / Madam,

Since the opponents are taking dates, you should plead that the Probate be issued ex-party by the Judge hearing the matter. A Probate on the Will is required to be issued by the Judge in charge of the concerned Court within three months of the date of filing the Will in the Court.

once your matter is sub judice i.e. pending in the court, you can not go for mutation except by court orders. any attempt to do so may be considered contempt of court.

thanks and regards
