Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Was the estate actually settled through the probate courts?
Did mother have a will when she passed?
Ok, if no one has ever filed a probate case to settle the estate, then there is nothing that would prevent you from filing a probate case to settle her estate, even 9 years later.
If she had no will, then under Kansas intestate law, her husband would inherit half her estate and her children would split the other half.
