Liable For Spouse's Debt?
Bob is not responsible for his deceased wife’s credit card debt, only on those that he co-signed, as well as estate debts.
ANSWER: You’re not responsible for your deceased wife’s debts unless you signed on her loans. Her estate, anything she owned, is liable for her debts though. For example, if you owned a house together, it is part of her estate. Anything she owned or that you owned together must be used to cover her debts.
