WVC 41 - 5 - 7 §41-5-7. Appeal from probate order -- When to be taken; procedure.

Any person feeling himself aggrieved by any order or judgment of the county commission admitting or refusing to admit any will to probate may, within three months, or, if such a person be under any disability within three months after such disability ceases, file his petition in the circuit court of such county, or before the clerk thereof, appealing to the circuit court from such order or judgment, stating in the petition the grounds of appeal and the parties interested in the probate of the will; and, in case of appeal, it shall be the duty of the clerk of the county commission promptly to transmit to the clerk of the circuit court, the will and all original papers filed or used in the proceedings for probate, together with copies of all orders made therein. The clerk of the circuit court shall, upon the filing of such petition, issue process thereon, and the case shall be proceeded in, tried and determined in such court, regardless of the proceedings before the county commission, and in the same manner and in all respects as if the application for such probate had been originally made to the circuit court.
