Homestead Exemption

My wife passed away in Jan of this year. She had a personal injury claim from over a year ago, for $6,300, which I had to qualify as administrator to collect. She had no assets what so ever. If I were to claim bankruptcy, can I claim this money under the $15,000 surviving spouse homestead act? Can I claim any of my personal property under the same act? Should I, or can I, file her debts on my bankruptcy as she is deceased and I am administrator? Any information would be helpful, The three attorneys I've spoken to don't seem to know. (I've received three different answers). I want to file bankruptcy Pro Se.

Thank You
