Perfect result. Do not let any of your father's creditors scare or guilt you into paying anything.Hello,
Just an update because I hate it when folks don't come back and let you know how things have progressed.
I met with a lawyer and laid everything out. There were two life insurance policies that named me as the beneficiary which pass outside the estate. Also, because of how we held title to the house it also passed outside the estate. In the end his estate consisted of some clothes and what he had in the bank (about $400 after the funeral expenses).
The advice is to return any bills to sender and not worry about it. Of course, I'll still worry a bit until I'm sure it all goes away.
