Well, the bankruptcy should get rid of the debts. When our loved ones die, the family is usually left with any debt they have left to pay. Just make sure not to co-sign on anything that you don't want to be paying for in the future. * Family members are not legally responsible for any other family members debts if they are not joint debtors. Debts of deceased persons are included in the estate and are handled according to state probate law. The exception might be a surviving spouse when the couple resided in a community property state, if the spouse is not a joint BK petitioner.

How do you know if your mortgage loan is a non recourse loan or recourse loan?

Good question, I have been looking for an exact answer my self. I have learned from my searches: Generally a note is an obligation to pay and must be paid in full. So, unless a note is explicitly non-recourse, the creditor can seek any of debtor's property for payment (subject to bankruptcy limitations). The general rule is that note secured by mortgages on property are recourse loans. The major exception comes from the antideficiency statues, common in the western states, that apply generally to mortgages securing loans on personal residences.
