A: What was distributed according to the order for final distribution? If it was real estate, then recording the order transferred the property to you. Was the estate solvent? If it was insolvent, then there wouldn't be any property to distribute to the heirs. There are a lot more questions that are left unanswered. Did you sign a quitclaim deed transferring your interest in the property to your sister? You should bring the order for final distribution and quitclaim deed to a local attorney to review for you.
