It depends on the state in which the couple live and when the house was bought. If the married couple reside in a community property state and the home was purchased during the marriage, then the home can probably subjected to creditor action. If they do not live in a CP state and their are no joint debts in default, the house is protected in most cases.

I don't know of a phone number that you can call to see if your tax refund will be taken or partially taken for debts such as you mentioned here. The IRS is not the agency that handles this action, it is the Department of the Treasury, but a different department with the Treasury Department. If you have a debt of this type that is listed as delinquent, the odds are that funds will be taken for these debts. Also, if you have a debt of this type you will already know about it. Letters are mailed to people many times who have these debts and whether or not your refund is taken, look at it as a way to get the debt paid. Once debts are paid in full you will no longer have to worry about your refund going toward delinquent debts owed to a Government Agency.

If you are on the mortgage, you are on the house loan. If you mean you are on the deed, but not the mortgage, then there may be an issue. Many states have a homestead or dower right that could protect you. Consult a local attorney for help!

No, the executor is responsible to insure the estate is taken care of. Them means either selling the house or paying off the mortgage. One way or another the debts have to be resolved before the estate is closed.

That depends on many things, the most important of which is called a Will. If your Dad made a Will, then all his property after any taxes or debts he owed that may have to be paid (his estate) is divided up as the Will specifies. His house in these circumstance will go to the person he has left it to. If there is no Will, then the estate will be taken over by someone appointed by the state/country in which he lived and this person will divide up the estate as your countries laws require. As the person was your Dad you will have a claim on his estate and the house could go to you but if your Dad left a wife, she will have a pirority claim on it, even if she is not your mother. Without a Will it is complicated - get legal advice.

All unsecured Debt may be discharged in chapter 7,(credit cards, personal loans, and others) secured debts (such as car loans and mortgage), and other assets will be taken by the estate, and will be used to repay the creditors, it is very important that you discuss this with your attorney if you are planning to keep your house or car, taxes owed, student loans will not be discharged... While virtually all debts MUST be included in your bankruptcy, (it is not a matter of picking and chosing..all must be included), some debts cannot be discharged, just like all assets MUST be listed but not all may be taken. Most noteably: Debts for gov't insured student loans and past and future child support are not dischargeable. Many assets like retirement accounts, household goods, a reasonable car, are not able to be used to satisfy debts.

Garnishments can only be issued on debts which have been taken to court and a judgment has been issued. A person can be sued and taken to court for a credit card debt.
