Hello all. Forgive me if this is a stupid question, but this is my first time dealing with such a problem. I am looking to reclaim monies spent on cremating my mother and her urn. Basically, to make a long story short, she died in January, and my Step-Father, who survived her, just died this past June 7th. He "inherited" her 401k pension, but was not able to cash it before his death. The pension check now goes to his estate, of course, but I have been told I might have a chance at reclaiming the debt I incurred from my mom's cremation and urn if I bill the estate. However, I do not understand how that might be done.
If it makes any difference, both died in California. His youngest blood daughter is trying to take over executor of his estate.
