1. Check your timing: Are you within the time limit of 180 days after Grant of Probate? Section 61 of Wills, Estate and Succession Act prohibits any applications to vary a Will after 180 days from the date probate was granted. If the time limit expires, you will be unable to bring your claim. Other challenges to Wills may have a longer limitation period, but it is important to commence your claim promptly to protect your rights.
