Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Was probate for the brother filed, or did you sing anything guaranteeing payment yourself here, some more information please..
You are not liable for his debts unless you signed to be, otherwise only his state if there was probate are liable.If you signed a contract or guarantee only then can they send this to collections.
If you didn't sign and agree to pay yourself no need to pay these guys it is not your debt it would belong to the estate and if there are no assets it is noncollectable.
Yes and this is small amount here, if you can afford to do so, call them and see if you can do like $20 amonth, something you can afford,otherwise you wait and see if they turn this to collections.
Thanks again and the best, ***** ***** your loss of family member.
You are so welcome.
