For breach of contract against deceased estate?
This is a follow up just so I can understand possibilities.
This is a Probate question so I changed the subject area. It is very possible there are not enough assets of the estate to pay a timley filed claim against an estate. The claim is NOT breach of contract, as you had no "contract" wth the administrator of the estate. You had a claim against the deceased person. Please contact an attorney experienced in probate for specific advice about your claim.

I agree with Ms. Coleman. See an attorney ASAP. First, if you have a claim against the estate that is based on a disputed claim, must at some point be settled. So if you have a claim for breach of contract, at some point, you have to litigate that claim and get a Judge to agree with you.
Second, as Ms. Coleman points out, the ability to pay claims is based on availability of money to the estate. You need to speak to a probate attorney ASAP
