The time in which to object formally to the will is within 90 days after a Notice of Administration has been filed and served or 20 days if the Notice of the probate proceedings is received prior to the will being admitted to probate.

Be very careful, there is an actual 20 day deadline involved! Address this Immediately!

Any objections to the notice must be made within three months after service of the notice. Objections may be made challenging the will’s validity, the venue or court jurisdiction or the personal representative’s qualifications by any interested person to the estate. Objections must be made in writing and filed with the Miami-Dade probate court. No extensions of objections will be given by the personal representative. Objections which are not filed within the prescribed statutory time are barred. If a new will or codicil is admitted to the court, the personal representative must serve a new notice of administration. Objections may be made to the new notice within the three month period from the date of the proof of service of the new notice.

Any situation that is time sensitive should be discussed with an attorney. Do not rely solely on information found on the internet when making a decision involving a time period – doing so may lead you to default and loose substantial legal rights.

Now that you have an idea of how much time people have to object (still ask an estate attorney, though), you can find out who else is entitled to receive the Miami Notice of Probate, and see what the provisions of the Miami probate notice should contain.
