Father's debt after death
My father recently passed away and left what he had, which wasn't much, to me and my brother. My father did have some unpaid balances on a few credit cards which may total $6,000 all together. I wanted to know if we don't probate the will, is there any way the creditors can collect from us? Since his estate would probably not cover the debt, should we just let the debt go into collections and would the creditors eventually just write it off?
