If you are a beneficiary she does have to distribute and account. I do not know what you mean by protest.

Re: Protesting a will ( Time limit ? )

The will should be at the probate court within ten days after your fathers death. If you are a beneficiary of the will, you should have received at least some idea by now of the assets in the estate as well as your approximate share. If you have any of the suspicions you have expressed in your email, I would suggest you email me a phone number that I can reach you at to talk to you directly about all the facts because this should be resolved quickly.
