Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Daughter has no legal duty to take on this responsibility if she doesn't want to. But if she signs to accept responsibility for the body, then it is on her to pay for any burial or cremation.
So if she doesn't want to be stuck with the problem of dealing with his remains, she wouldn't want to be the one signing to accept that duty.
You are very welcome. Happy to help any time. Don't let daughter get talked into taking on this burden...
If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided as that is the only way I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.
