Thanks for your question. Assuming there is no will, your mother’s estate is divided between you and your niece, assuming she is an only child. She inherits in place of your late brother. The debt to you and any other debts and funeral expenses fall to be deducted from the total estate before the division takes place. I hope that helps.
