Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Good morning and thanks for using Just Answer. If you are a creditor of your ex spouse who has died, you must file a claim in the estate within a certain length of time, depending upon your states laws. Failing to file such claim in the estate will bar it. If no state has been opened, creditors generally have the right to do so in order to pursue collection of their debt. I suggest that you consult a local probate attorney about this matter.
I hope that I have provided excellent service and, if so, would love a 5 star rating. If not, please let me know how I can further assist you. There is no additional charge to you for rating me. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
Thanks again for using JUST ANSWER.
I am going to opt out of this question now and see if anyone else can assist you.
