Handling credit card debt after death

After California residents die, spouses or others who are left behind may wonder if they are responsible for the decedent's credit card debt. In most cases, they are not. However, it is possible that debt collectors or others may try to convince a surviving loved one to pay it.

Probate process provides a means to challenge invalid wills

After a person in California dies, their estate enters probate, the process by which their property is transferred after death. Probate collects property, ensures debts are paid from the estate and then sees that the property is distributed according to the wishes of the person who passed away. This is possible if the person has enshrined their wishes in a written document, most frequently a will.

Be aware of estate theft

The truth about estate theft is that it happens much more often than you think. A full spectrum of people steal from deceased people’s estates. Among them are trusted members of the community; former caregivers, relatives, estate administrators and funeral home employees are caught in this type of crime.
