You would check the probate notes a couple of weeks before the hearing to check on whether there is anything else needed.

Q. Can child of a deceased parent enter the deceased persons house before the estate is settled?
A: Yes, that is possible.
Q. As a live in caregiver Do I have a case against an estate. The person has passed away and I'm penniless.
