Notices of exceptions are employed in various permissible or legal settings, but normally are used to record or register an official objection to a proposed action. For instance, when an estate or land of a deceased is attempted to be settled, but an interested party objects to the proposed settlement of the estate by the executor, it may be possible to file a notice of exceptions. There are set of laws concerning the form and timing of such notices, and failure to timely serve the notice often waives the objections therein.
A hearing of exceptions is used when you have an objection to an action that is being purposed to you. You will have to file the appropriate paper work within a timely manner in order for it to be looked at other wise it will be waived.
