Due to complexities (mostly costs) associated with removing the negligent Executor, I'm considering simply filing at least one claim against the estate. The probate estate has been open for almost 2 years and the notice to creditors was just published three months ago. Can I file claims such as legal fees, stolen property (that the executor stole from me), inventory and accounting errors the executor made, labor to remodel and sell the probated house, etc.? Is there some list of what I can and cannot file a claim for?
The executor is refusing to pay me my part of the estate funds until I sign a release that releases the executor of all liability. Since the executor has been extremely negligent, I don't want to sign that. May I file a claim against the estate for my portion? ThanksWould I have to appear in court regarding the claims? I live 2,000 miles away from the probate court and they don't have a method for me to appear by phone.
