In the event of my husbands death would I be responsible for his debts if I didn't sign any of them. We live in Georgia.Thank you?

Thank you for your question. My name is Ellen. I will do whatever I can to answer your questions!

No you would not be responsible for your husbands debt such as credit cards and bank loans since you did not sign on the debt. However if your husband has outstanding medical bills, you may be held liable for those medical bills regardless of whether you signed for the medical service

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I would be glad to assist you further if I can
