SECTION 1922
Conclusive presumption after 10 years
Surrogate's Court Procedure Act (SCP) CHAPTER 59-A, ARTICLE 19
§ 1922. Conclusive presumption after 10 years.

An action or proceeding to set aside any disposition of the real
property of a decedent pursuant to an order granted under this article
or under article 13 of the surrogate's court act by reason of lack of
jurisdiction over any person interested in the estate or by reason of
any other defect in the procedure must be brought within 10 years after
the date of the order or within 1 year after the effective date of this
article, whichever date is later. After the lapse of such period the
presumption that the order was regular in all respects and that the
court had jurisdiction of all persons interested in the estate becomes
conclusive.
