Time to probate the will


Can you please let me know what is the reasonable time do we have to probate the will after the death of the person who wrote the will as we are living outside india and planning to come back only after 2 years. Do you see any problems in this approach ?

please consult a lawyer immediately since probate takes 8-10 months from the court. you can come down to India, engage a lawyer, finidh the application and then leave. Its only a few days.

It should be probated within two years from the date of knowledge. However, if you are the only two beneficiaries in the Will, what is the necessary for grant of probate, the Will can be acted upon directly (if you do not foresee any objection to it from any corner)
