i have been trying to find out for some time now what the statute of limitations are in n.y. for filing a will and getting things settled with the estate. it has been 8 years now that she passed away and no one has filed the will or done anything to settle the estate and i was told by a lawyer a while back that there is a statute of limitation on everything except murder. the thing is no one has told me what that time is and when the time runs out, what happens to the estate?
