how do i submit a bill to a deceased person''s estate? the payment for the job was a verbal agreement, and payment was approved by the executor. now the executor is saying there was no agreement.

Dear ragedyanniee - You need to file a written proof of claim in the probate court where the estate is filed. If the executor disputes the claim then the court will hold a hearing to determine the validity of your bill to the estate. Send a copy to the executor and file the original with the court and be sure to include the case number XXXXX this will become part of the estate file.
