Probate Actions and the Limitation Period (Illinois)

By Matthew A. Quick In the case of Bjork v O'Meara the court held that the limitation period for will contests as provided for in the Probate Act (6 months from notice/publication), applies to an action for tortious interference with testamentary expectancy.

The lesson: when someone has a problem with an estate, don't delay! Be sure to talk with an attorney as soon as possible.
