Kentucky is not a community property state, therefore is you can prove that you were not a willing party to the transaction, you might be able to employ an "innocent spouse" defense and be relieved of the responsibility of the debt. The best option would be to seek the advice of a qualified attorney, most offer free or minimal fee consultations. If you so choose you can contact the state bar association for a referral.

Is the survivor of a deceased person obligated to pay off any debts that are solely in the name of the deceased?

No, not unless you are otherwise liable for the debt. Surviving a decedent has nothing to do with liability. However, if you had an obligation to support the decedent, you may be liable for that person's "necessaries." If you are the decedent's surviving spouse in a community property state, your half of the community property might be liable for the debt, but you, personally, would not be liable. The person's estate (if any) would be used to pay creditors in a specific order, but that assumes the creditor will take the steps necessary to enforce the debt.EDIT TO ABOVE: Depending on your state, the surviving spouse may be liable for a decedent's debt, even if it was in the decedent's name alone. It really depends on the laws of your state. However, state laws may also place a limit on the liability of the surviving spouse.

Survivor Checklist?

Get StartedWhen someone dies (referred to as a "Decedent"), the Decedent's surviving family members and/or friends need to gather up the Decedent's assets, pay any debts and expenses, and distribute the Decedent's remaining property to the proper beneficiaries. In many cases, tax issues will need to be addressed. Different procedures will be required, depending on the type of assets that the Decedent owned, the specific details of the Decedent's estate plan, and the circumstances that exist at the time of death.The Survivor Checklist helps you organize the Decedent's personal, legal, and financial information for the benefit of the persons who will be responsible for handling the estate, often a close family member and a lawyer. The family member is often appointed as the "Executor," "Administrator," or "Personal Representative" in accordance with formal probate proceedings. This program uses the familiar term "Executor."This program assumes that the Decedent had a written will that might be "admitted to probate" so that the Decedent's wishes as stated in the will can be followed. It is not always necessary to use probate to accomplish the Decedent's estate plan, and an attorney can help you with that decision. The information gathered by using this Survivor Checklist is also helpful where the Decedent did not have a will. For example, if the Decedent used a living trust instead of a regular will to state his/her wishes, this checklist would also be helpful for that situation.

Your dad died in WV 2 years ago He told he you had a will but you never saw it How can you get a copy of it?

First, check with the county clerk in the decedent's county of residence to find out if the decedent deposited the Will with the clerk for safekeeping during his lifetime. If he did not, then ask his surviving spouse or other survivors who are likely to have it. Failing that, you can hire an attorney to file a motion to compel the surviving family to produce a Will, if it indeed exists. As a practical matter, it would be easy for a survivor in possession of a Will to hide its existence by, for example, burning it, shredding it, etc.


When your spouse dies does the surviving spouse get the estate even if there is a will?

In most states, the surviving spouse can "take against the will" if the estate is of a certain size or if no provision is made for the survivor. There is often a limit to the time the survivor can use the real estate or the amount that can be claimed.
