Surrogate's Court Procedure Act (SCP) CHAPTER 59-A, ARTICLE 14
§ 1410. Who may file objections to probate of an alleged will

Any person whose interest in property or in the estate of the testator
would be adversely affected by the admission of the will to probate may
file objections to the probate of the will or of any portion thereof
except that one whose only financial interest would be in the
commissions to which he would have been entitled if his appointment as
fiduciary were not revoked by a later instrument shall not be entitled
to file objections to the probate of such instrument unless authorized
by the court for good cause shown. The objections must be filed on or
before the return day of the process or on such subsequent day as
directed by the court; provided however that if an examination is
requested pursuant to 1404, objections must be filed within 10 days
after the completion of such examinations, or within such other time as
is fixed by stipulation of the parties or by the court.
