I was employed in CA
I am sure the family petition to probate the estate because the his nephew was saying that he was talking to lawyer.
I haven't filed application for unemployment benefits
Lawyer: N Cal Atty, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

Thank you.

You can file a wage claim with the DLSE and they will pursue thus. You can also file a creditor's claim with the executor or administrator of the estate. Remember to include the waiting time penalties of a days wages times 30.

I hope this information is helpful.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
