DearCustomer- The best way to notify anyone is to send a letter by certified mail. In the case of telling someone you are not responsible for a debt you can give the notice but if you are legally responsible for the debt the notice will not relieve you of that responsibility.

Then I believe a certified letter to the appropriate office should suffice. There is no legal way I know of that your 30 year old son could somehow make you responsible for his bills just by saying that you were. You would actually have to accept responsibility in some way. If you get any bills in spite of your letter just send the bill back with an explanation and a copy of the certified letter previously sent.
