Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
If you have a judgment against the estate, you would have to go to court to file a writ of seizure/garnishment and list the assets of the estate as the assets you want the garnishment to come from. It is not that costly to do. Once you get the writ of seizure, then you would serve the executor and seize the settlement or other assets in the trust and if she refuses to turn them over you would file the writ in the probate court and they would order it surrendered to you to satisfy the judgment.
