Hi and welcome to JA. I am Ray and will be the expert helping you today.

The answer here is no they cannot go after your daughter for your debts.The equity loan has to be paid because they have a lien on the house but any unsecured debts, credit cards, etc in your name are not going to be paid.By avoiding probate here the creditors are without recourse.They can only close out the accounts and write off the debt.

You have done great estate planning , this should help daughter avoid any of your debts.

I appreciate the chance to help you today.Thanks again.
