Estates have to be approved by judges if there are problems or protests. The courts hope the family will take care of it and everything will go well, but they're there if it doesn't.
It seems awfully soon for him to be declared anything, let alone "indigent." If he was found in his home, he isn't indigent. Be patient. It'll work out. I think I read somewhere that estates tend to take an average of two years, not 10. Unless you're Elvis Presley or John Lennon.
