What is the time frame for contesting a will in Mississippi?

It depends on the type of probate.  If common form probate, 2 years from the date the probate concludes.  If solemn form probate when it is final the will cannot be contested. The reason is because in a solemn form probate all interested persons are made a party to the proceeding.

If no probate file a caveat against probate to begin the process.
