My deepest sympathies for your loss.

Your Question:

Am I Responsible For Paying This Debt??

Response: No, you are not unless your signed the admission papers to the nursing facility as the "Responsible Party." If you did not do so, then you need to send a notice to the nursing facility to stop contacting you with regard to the debt because your husband's estate has no assets and you are not responsible for his bills.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
