Time limit for Suing estate for spousal allowance

When a deficiency judgment exists in an Estate file, how long does a spouse have to file a lawsuit against the estate to collect the deficiency from real estate that was part of the estate?

If you are attempting to bring suit against the estate for some breach of the separation agreement, you should do so as soon as possible. You do not want the estate to be distributed and have difficulty obtaining your award. If you are trying to obtain a spousal allowance, that is an estate question and is outside of the scope of this forum.
