------When am I eligible to probate her property?------
------when should I get started with the process?------
You can open probate anytime after she has died. So, now is appropriate to commence with filing a petition.
-----How should I start? -----
You start by filing a petition in the probate court for the county where she lived on the date she died. You need to give notice to all the other sibs and other relatives. The court will have a hearing to appoint you as a representative of the estate.
Which county would you be filing in?
