Q: collect a court order debt in small claim from the deceased access or estate. Court Advisor me to file correct form
I do Not Know What Form to file to continue collecting the debt owed to me
A: Your question is not entirely clear, but it seems like you may need to file a "creditors claim" if the decedent has a probate open. If not, you may have to open a probate for them. But that could be more of a hassle and expense than you really want.
A: It’s hard to know what you need. Most courts have a self-help center that can assist you with what form to use, but they cannot advise you after that because the people working there are not lawyers. Start there because it’s free. If you still need help after that, you’ll need to hire a lawyer. Best wishes!
