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?

My wife walked away from home close to 2 years ago and has

My wife walked away from home close to 2 years ago and has never felt responsible for paying important join responsibilities such as mortgage payments. For nearly 20 years she has never made an effort to savings for our retirement years nor to maintain the two hoises we purchased. Do I have any rights to consider this marriage over and claim the property as mi e? To her, she would give it away to "get rid of the problem" even though the propert rental earning I produce has enabled me to continue honoring the deal estate investment.
