A: I am sorry for your loss. The options you have available in handling your Father's Estate will depend upon whether he had a Will, the value and type of assets in his Estate and whether he had any creditors that could make a claim against his Estate. You will need to hire a probate attorney to assist you with the process. Best of Luck! Jennifer
