- Q. my mom passed last week. she seems to have an outstanding medical bill. how valid is that bill post death
- A: If she opens a probate case within 6 months of death, then the bill could be payable from her probate estate assets, if she has sufficient probate assets. If she does not file a probate case, then it is unlikely this bill will need to be paid. In general, her debts are only payable from her assets. If she has no assets, then generally, the family is not responsible to pay her debt from their personal assets. Some exceptions apply, so I would need more information.
