Changes to Effect of Will Caveat on Probate Proceeding
Beginning October 1, 2009, when a lawsuit is filed to contest a Will (Caveat), the probate administration will no longer be fully suspended until the caveat is resolved. Only certain actions, such as distributions to beneficiaries and payment of personal represenative’s commissions, will be prohibited.
