Deceased being sued.
My late husband is being sued for a hospital bill from 3 years ago. I have not been able to locate any documentation
that he has paid it. I did respond by mailing them a copy of the death certificate and I am awaiting the attorney's reply. My name is not listed on the lawsuit, just his. What are my legal obligations in this case? I am alone with 3 children to raise by myself and another monthly bill would be a financial burden to me.

Re: Deceased being sued.
As a practical matter, I do not believe that the hospital and its collection attorney would pursue the claim against you personally based upon the facts you posted.
If they do, call me and we will cross the bridge when we come to it.
