Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Good evening. I am Loren, an Illinois licensed attorney, and I look forward to assisting you. My condolences for your loss.
Have you signed anything agreeing to be liable for her debts?
Are you online with me?
You have no legal obligation to do anything. You do not have to involve yourself in probate or have any dealings with her creditors. You have no personal liability for her debts unless you have signed something agreeing to be so liable.
Otherwise, you can ignore any requests from the creditors.
Did you have further questions? Have I answered your question?
If you have no further questions, and have not yet done so, please remember to leave a favorable rating (5 stars) so that I am credited by JustAnswer for assisting you. A bonus is not required, but is always appreciated.
