AnswerNo, you need to send a copy of the death certificate to the credit card company. You are not responsible for your father's debt.
Not sure what the procedure is for all credit card companies, but as long as you are not in charge of the deceased's estate, and your name is not on the credit card account, then you are not responsible. However, you are supposed to call the credit card company and report their death. Any charges incurred after the date of the deceased's death, you are responsible for -- as an authorized user. If you wish to assume the credit card account, you must send the company a copy of your documents naming you as the 'executor of the estate'. This was the case in my mother's recent departure.
If the card is in his name, only, there may be an out. You will need to get legal help.
No. The card holder is responsible for all debt on the credit they extended to him. (You may be responsible to the credit card holder for the debt he incurred for you, if that was your agreement).

It depends on the fine print. If the credit card company determines that you received benefit from the use of the card, you can be held responsible for the charges. If the estate of the deceased has resources the card should have been paid off and terminated upon the death of the holder. Any use use of the card after the death of the cardholder most likely constitutes fraud, especially if the subsequent user did not pay for the card balance. But you'll need to read the terms of the use agreement to verify that.
