Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.
I would suggest that you leave titles as they are and keep driving them.If you were to open probate the creditors likely try to force a sale and it gets applied to the bill.Tell them she died insolvent and no probate is anticipated.Unless you signed some guarantee of payment they have to close their files here nothing to collect against and they cannot hold you liable.
This seems like the prudent way to proceed here under the circumstances.If the vehicles in both names you can drive them until they die but cannot get clear title without probate here in Texas.
They cannot sue you nor garnish your VA or social security under Texas law.
I appreciate your patience today.Thanks again.
Well you can sign her name here to car titles and change title and avoid probate.
They really cannot do anything to you if you write them and tell them she died insolvent and no probate is planned.Ask t hem to close their files as uncollectible.Thats the best way to try and get them off your case for her debt here. They cannot ding your credit for this.
You are so welcome just post for Ray only. I grew up in Houston, Astros look real good this year.
If you can positive rate it is always much appreciated.
