Dear ragedyanniee - You need to file a written proof of claim in the probate court where the estate is filed. If the executor disputes the claim then the court will hold a hearing to determine the validity of your bill to the estate. Send a copy to the executor and file the original with the court and be sure to include the case number ***** this will become part of the estate file.

It is a copy of your bill which you can file at the probate court. Make sure to write the case number ***** the bill.
