A: You should have your lawyer explain this. If you do not have counsel, you should retain one for representation. Good luck.

A: I am very sorry to hear about your daughter.

As to our question: It’s unclear to me whether you went to probate court and the estate was set up (you were appointed as personal representative or not?). Assuming you were and there is insurance available it often does not take very long beyond that to collect the limits of any applicable insurance if you are willing to accept that but you have to make that request of the insurance carriers.

Consult with an attorney if you are unsure of what next steps to take.
