My father pasted away last year without a will. He has two other adult children as well as myself. He had an law suit which remains opened. Every now and then he would receive money from that law suit. My sister has made herself Executor of his Estate. She just received three checks from that law suit. How is she suppose to distrube this money between my father's heirs?

You need to speak with an attorney as there are several aspects to your question which require interactive discussion. In addition, an attorney will need to review key documentation.
It is important that you understand the several aspects. Contact me should you desire legal services.
I agree with the previous answer. Your sister cannot simply make herself execuotr. To ensure your rights are protected, you need to hire a lawyer to take the matter to probate.
