Estate Law Questions? Ask an Estate Lawyer.
Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.
In Alabama, you would be entitled to 5% of the estate, plus reimbursement for any expenses you incur in administering the estate.
The court should award you the 5% on all of these assets plus your costs reimbursed.You can claim IRS mileage if driving was involved or airline travel costs.You would submit it all to the probate court for court approval to claim it.
I appreciate the chance to help you today and a merry Christmas.
