Huh? If the settlement occurred before he died, then probate would not be needed. You said your grandmother gave the money to his wife. Was your grandmother his guardian for some reason? You do need to provide more information for any answers to be given. If the funds went into a joint account or were given to the wife during his lifetime, you likely have no claim to the funds. Seek some legal help with all your paperwork.
