    You can challenge a will in court. You'll need to hire a lawyer.  Don't challenge the will if it's not large enough to justify the cost of legal fees, which could be considerable.

    How long a will may be in probate will depend on a variety of factors.  Six-nine months is pretty standard, but a large and complex estate could be in probate for a longer period of time.

    Yes, a will can be challenged, but they need reasons to do it.

    Probate during this pandemic has been slowed, like all court action. No way to know how long, and also depends on complexity.
