What is a Caveat? 

Any interested person who is apprehensive that an estate, either testate or intestate, will be administered or that a Will may be admitted to probate without that person’s knowledge may file a caveat with the court.

The caveat of the interested person, other than a creditor, may be filed before or after the death of the person for whom the estate will be, or is being, administered.

The caveat of a creditor may be filed only after the person’s death.
