In Georgia it will be the responsibility of the estate. No will is necessary to open an estate. Before anything in the estate can be distributed, the debts have to be cleared.

If your wife died with credit card debt in her name only should you send them a copy of her death certificate or wait for them to call?

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 a credit card holder dies and authorized user is not responsible for the bill can the authorized user's credit be damaged for not paying the bill for which they are not responsible?

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.
