New York is not a community property state, solely owed debts are the responsibility of the spouse who incurred such. Assets belonging to the deceased that are not considered exempt under state probate laws will be used to pay outstanding debts according to the priority. The surviving spouse is entitled by law to specific amounts of property and assets that are not subject to probate distribution or creditor action. NY is a TBE state therefore the family home and all belongings, at least one vehicle, death benefits from life insurance policies, some pensions (or a portion thereof)and any joint marital assets or property do not become a part of probate procedure and cannot be attached or incumbered for creditor debt. THEY WILL GO AFTER HIS ESTATE FOR THE MONEY
Only if the couple resided in a community property state at the time of death.
No one. The family is not responsible for the debt. Credit cards want people to think they are, but it is volunteer to pay/assume the debt of the person who passed away.
Debts of the spouse are considered to have benefited both of them. He can be held responsible for the debts.
Maryland is not a community property state, therefore the surviving spouse is not responsible for repayment of debt that was solely incurred by the deceased. The debts will become a part of the deceased's estate and will be handled according to state probate laws.
It would depend on the age of the child.
Yes. When an account is jointly held, all parties are equally responsible for the entire amount owed.
If the estate has any assets, the estate should pay for the debt before anything is passed on to the heirs. If there are no assets the credit card company will just have to write it off. You are not held responsible unless you co-signed for the card.
I live in California, and my grandmother passed away and I contacted the credit card companies, told them she died, sent a death certificate, and they took care of the debt.
Grandmother is. If she's passed away, then it's the responsibility of her estate as a whole, not the responsibility of any specific person.
The "you" who would be responsible for his credit card debt would be the benefactors of his estate. In most states, that automatically goes to the wife. I would check with an attorney before liquidating any assets to pay the debt.
No it is not is is scored as a passed ball.

The estate is responsible for the credit card debt. The assets of the estate cannot be distributed before the debts of the estate are paid. The executor is bound by law to give notice of the death to creditors. You should seek the advice from the attorney who is handling the estate.
if you are a joint user(you signed papers) then NOPE you're just as responsible. If you are an authorized user that may be different ans something to check into.
Your grandmother only co-signed. She would not be responsible for it unless he did not pay. Since she has passed away he is totally responsible for paying the debt.
No ... no RBI is credited for either a passed ball or a wild pitch.
Fair Credit Billing Act (FCBA) which passed in 1975.
In general if the card was used after the person died, the user is responsible for the debt. In some cases the person using the card could possibly be face fraud charges. The laws of the state in which the deceased resided governs the penalties and/or responsibilities of said action.
President Andrew Jackson was responsible. It started with the Indian Removal Act that was passed in Congress.
