My father recently died and my mom is currently trying to pay the bills. Is she resposible for debt that he established on his credit cards? (it wasn't a joint account, it solely belonged to him. and it was a Discover card, i don't know if that makes any difference)
Thanks for the help,

Let the adminstrator or executor of your father's estate decide what bills should be paid--along with those, perhaps, which should not. And, if that happens to be your mother, then she should arrange for a consultation with a Virginia attorney who is knowledgeable and experienced in matters of probate law and who should be able to advise her, accordingly.
