I am owed a nice sum of money from a woman who has an inheritence coming to her, but the will went to probate and she keeps telling me it hasn't been settled yet, and she hasn't received her money. It has been over a year 1/2, so I am inclined to think something is dishonest here. I need to know how to find out if it's been settled or not.

The best way to tell is to go to the Probate or Surrogates Court and check the records. However, you will have to know the name of the estate from which she is to receive money so you will know where to look once you get there. These should be public records open for all to see.
