In Mississippi is the surviving spouse responsible for debts solely incurred by a deceased spouse?
No. Mississippi is not a community property state. The state
does, however, have a rather obscure "necessities" statute which
pertains to those items purchased solely by a spouse on credit that
can be defined as needed by the married couple as a whole. The
statute is subject to many interpretations and therefore almost
impossible for a creditor to use as a means of collecting debt owed
from a surviving spouse.
