No. A freight bill only shows that the equipment was shipped. A signed delivery receipt would be needed. The equipment could have been lost or damaged and therefore not, or no longer, an asset.

After estate has no funds left what does the probate attorney do with rest of bills?

The debtors have to write off the money. If the assets of the estate do not cover the bills, there is little they can do, unless there is a co-signer to the obligation. It is not uncommon for the estate to be unable to cover all of the debts, particularly if there were major medical bills. All cases are different and it is best to contact a probate or estate planning attorney to ensure protection of your assets.

Is the surviving spouse responsible for medical bills after death in Indiana?

While rules vary by state, the answer to the question is "it depends." Directly, the surviving spouse is NOT responsible for any medical bills or other debts that are entirely in the name of the deceased. Typically this is the case with medical bills. If a person dies and their are probatable assets, then creditors can make claim on those assets. However, given a little planning you can die without ANY probatable assets. The following assets are not subject to probate: Insurance - with a listed beneficiary Retirement plans/annuities - with a listed beneficiary Accounts held TOD - Transfer on Death Accounts held POD - Payable on Death Accounts held JTWROS (Joint Tenants with rights of survivorship) House owned with a survivorship dead Assets held in a trust Note: At no point did I mention a will. A will is a declaration of where you want assets to go, but only those assets subject to probate. So if Dad has $50,000 sitting in a checking account with no POD or Joint Tenant, that assets is subject to probate.

Are you responsible for deceased mothers bills?

If your mother died without any assets but died flat broke, you are not responsible for her bills. You do not have to pay her bills out of your own money. (You have to pay any expenses you arrange for after she dies. If you buy a funeral you have to make sure it is paid for.) However, if your mother left you money and you are the executor of her estate, you must pay her bills.


Your mother died and it was not necessary to go to probate - do you have to pay her medical bills?

That depends on why probate was not necessary. If it is because there were no assets in the mother's name, then no one has to pay the medical bills unless someone guaranteed them. If no probate was necessary because all assets are in joint names with another person, the bills most likely will have to be paid out of those joint accounts. A person will not be allowed to insulate themselves from liability for bills just by putting his/her money into a joint account. Some states, like New Jersey, have specific banking laws that make jointly held assets recoverable by a creditor if the estate is insolvent. In any event, "you" do not have to pay those bills unless you guaranteed them or you don't get any of the decedent's money by way of joint , POD or ITF accounts.

They are the person responsible for the estate. They have a fiduciary duty to preserve the value of the estate. A complete inventory and valuation of the assets must be completed.
