we were divorced when he died.
Expert:  Debra replied 7 months ago.

Was there a separation agreement?

If so what did it say about claims to the estate?

If not then did the divorce judgment deal with the estate?

When did you separate and when did you divorce?

Were you financial dependent on your former spouse at the time of his death?
