Best Answer

The estate is responsible for his debts. In most cases this will mean that the credit cards will have to be paid off before the spouse or children can inherit any money. If the wife is also listed on the credit card, she will be liable along with the estate for paying it off. This question is best posed to an attorney familar with California estate law and this mans' will.

Are children responsible for doctor bills after parent passes and there is an estate?

Not being a legal professional, this answer is from a layman's viewpoint until improved by a professional, and should be be confirmed by cousultation with a legal professional in the state where the decedent lived at the time of his or her death. It is my understanding that the estate is responsible for debts of the deceased, and children, or other relatives, are not responsible unless they have previously "signed on" to responsibility, as for example, by signing a hospital admission document as the "Responsible Party" regarding billing.

Who is responsible for credit card debt when a person dies in New York State?

If the person left a Will then Probating the Will will pay all debts the person has left behind and what is left in the Estate (is called 'residue) and this is what is left for the Heirs in the Will. If the person dies without a Will whatever they have is sold and debts paid off, but it's not up to next of kin (unless their name is on the credit card application) to pay the debt. Example: If a husband passes away and the husband and wife's name is on the Credit Card (it usually is) then the wife is responsible for the Credit Card debt.
