As executor, how do I handle creditors in Mississippi?

In Mississippi, you are required to make a reasonable effort to identify the creditors and send them a notice to file their claim in the probate proceeding within 90 days from the date of first publication notice to creditors.

Once files and allowed you are required to pay the creditors from estate proceeds unless the estate is insolvent. If you do not pay secured creditors, they will still be able to go after the property that they have a security interest in.
