My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: Alabama. I made a promissory note agreement with the decedent many years ago for a loan of money. I am a named heir in the will of the decedent as well. The statute of limitations has long expired for a promissory note in Alabama and there is no language about this loan in the will. The promissory note was discovered by the executor. My questions is this: Can he take the remaining balance from my inheritance even if the statute of limitations has expired on the promissory note?
