An overwhelming majority of the states possess nonclaim statutes, which, in one form or another, purport to bar all claims against decedent's estates not presented to the decedent's personal representative within a stipulated period. It is the purpose of this comment to compare such statutes with the general statutes of limitations, giving particular regard to those situations where the operation of the two types of statute upon one cause of action may appear to conflict.
