Affidavit has been filed? M deceased dad had no other debts. DO we need an attorney to help me get the money or can I do this on my own.
I would suggest that you at least consult with an atty in Clarksville. You don't need to hire him/her to handle the estate just to give you guidance.

You can go to the County Circuit Clerks office and get an Affidavit of Small Estates have it correctly signed and then file it with the clerk. Then if you are wanting to sell real estate you will have to file a notice of your appointment as representative of the estate in a local newspaper . You should get an attorney to assist you with this process
