Dear JACUSTOMER - You can open an estate for your wife and then sue on behalf of her estate. If the money is owed to your wife then her estate would have to be the plaintiff in the suit. You can use the note as evidence of the debt. You can open the estate in the local probate court in the county where you reside.
