Thank you for your question. A widow is not liable for her late husband’s debts. The late husband’s estate is liable for his debts. The difficulty arises where property was owned jointly between them. The creditors can go after the husband’s half and that of course could affect the widow. Happy to discuss further. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
