Am I responsible for my deceased parent or spouse’s bills?

The answer to that is probably not. However, if while they were living, you became a guarantor on a credit card or a guarantor on some other debt whereby you have indicated that you will take over the debt if something happens to them or they can’t pay. So therefore, that is the situation where you would be responsible. However, the vast majority of estates do not require individuals who are not in the estate, that is deceased, to pay the bills.
