Does it mean I can't keep doing discovery anymore?

I'm a pro per. I'm trying to tie up the last loose end from

I'm a pro per.I'm trying to tie up the last loose end from some post-dissolution business over property division (for a vehicle). After a few months of my sending sporadic e-mails and leaving messages, I finally caught up with my ex's attorney by telephone. I told the attorney two weeks back that I need a standard DMV form filled out by my ex, plus a snapshot of the odometer, and she agreed to pass the message along. I am restrained from direct contact with my ex.When I contacted the attorney to follow up, she told me she's so busy that she does not intend to contact my ex until her bigger cases are out of the way and she gets settled in with a new office assistant. She (the attorney) seemed to gloat on the fact that it'll take longer to get a hearing than to wait until she has time. I stand to face minor financial damages if this drags out, and harm to my credit. The attorney knows that.I was told by the attorney - point blank - that she doesn't have an hour to spend on my ex, and that the case is not a priority. I have a lurking suspicion that my ex didn't pay her.Is the attorney's behavior ethical, particularly in terms of communicating w/ clients over material concerns? I'm weighing the tactical advantages of an ex parte motion, or submitting a complaint to the state bar. What makes more sense?

I was executor of an Indiana estate where the person died in

I was executor of an Indiana estate where the person died in 2004 and the estate settled and closed in 2006. I was contacted this year by the Unclaimed Property Division of the Indiana Attorney General's Office that some $91,000 in stock dividends, cash and life insurance dividends had apparently accrued after the 2006 closing. I was urged to file the claim as executor and I recently received the check in my name since I am also the residual beneficiary. My question: Does the statute of limitations (10 years) apply to a long-closed estate where my responsibility of distributing these assets to the remaining beneficiaries would exempt me from paying both Federal and Indiana estate tax?
