Her house should close this month and my brother, sister & I want to settle the estate. But we just received a bill from the hospital for her from April - how long do we need to wait to settle the estate in case other bills might come in?
Estate Planning Attorney
In Ohio Creditors have six months from the date of death to present their claims. It sounds like this claim may have been submitted after that time frame.
You should consult with a probate attorney to see if you can reject the claim.
