Texas

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Yes, My husband is a alcoholic and was in the hospital about 4 weeks ago from a alcholic siezure and was put on life support. after he got better the dr told him that if he continued the road he was going down he would be back in the hospital dead or on life support. I carry ins on him if I drop him off the ins and he ends up back in the hospital would our children be responsible for his debt?
