Customer Question

My brother passed away in February of 2015. His ex wife got the conservitorship of his estate. I paid for his funeral. I put a lien on his estate in probate court to be reimbursed. She has now sold his house he bought after their divorce but I have not heard anything from the court about my lien. I called probate court and they told me to call the Registry of Deeds. I called them and they didn't know what I was talking about. What do I do now?
