One of my family members died several months ago.
Based on your follow up post, I assume this person was your mother. Exactly when did she die?
Even before death, I was told that the will was specifically set up to be divided equally between three family members.
You were told by whom?
I have heard that there is a 120 day time period in which I am able to contest the will. That time has passed by now. Is there still anything I can do?
Your statement that the "time has passed by now" may not be correct because I suspect you think the 120 days starts running on the date of death, which is not correct. Has your mother's alleged will been admitted to probate? If so, when did that happen?
Regardless of how you answer these questions, I hope you don't need us to tell you that you should contact a probate/estate attorney in the area where your mother lived.
Also, the family member who wrote the will lived in California. I live in a different state. Does this mean anything as for the contesting time period?
