I am very sorry to hear about you losing one of your parents. I lost my mother just over a year ago. Usually there is a Will and it's between husband and wife (in this case mother/father.) Generally everything goes to the spouse with the exception of possibly jewelry, china, etc., that your mother may have left to you or your siblings and that your father should give you if this is the case. Your father would be responsible for paying income tax. If your parents were divorced or your mother was a widow, then she too should have a Will. Before siblings can have any properties such as a house, land, condo, owned apartment, the estate has to go through the Probate. Probate makes sure that all creditors are paid off, all personal, house and land taxes are paid in full. What is left after this is divided according to your mother's wishes or if there is no will, according the the laws of your state. It is best to consult a probate attorney that deals with such things. If your mother has a lawyer and you know who it is, then please contact him/her and they will assist you in taking care of the estate for you.

No. Not unless they agreed in writing to be responsible for those bills.

If there are not enough assets in the estate the creditors are out of luck. The exception is mortgages. If the mortgage isn't paid the bank will take possession of the property by foreclosure.

If someone is ill and has had lots of medical treatment and has no insurance when that person dies who is legally responsible for the bills?

A parent of a minor child is responsible for the child's medical bills. In many states, a spouse is responsible for the other spouse's medical bills. A parent of a grown child (18+.) is NOT responsible, nor is a child of an aging parent, unless someone signed the hospital or physician's form as a responsible party. If the deceased is an adult with no dependents and no one else signed a form to take financial responsibility, then the estate of the deceased will be responsible for the medical bills. If there is no cash in the estate, the provider is simply out of luck - they cannot chase after relatives in an attempt to collect the debt. If the deceased left a sum of cash or assets, then all outstanding bills should be paid from the estates assets prior to distribution to heirs.
