What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Tennessee
My husband died in March 08 of Pancreatic Cancer. He was self employed prior to his illness and had two business visa credit cards. One had a balance of about $8,000 and the other $13,000. I was not a joint account holder on either card. I have sent certified death certificates to each creditor. The creditor that was owed $8,000 said they would charge the amount off and I have not rcvd any futher calls or letters. The other creditor however calls daily and sends bills and notices weekly. I don't have the means to pay this debt and I have explained this to them. What can I do? I also have a $3,000 medical bill from the cancer clinic he went to and an $800 ambulance bill from his last visit to the hospital. I need to know what my rights are as the surviving spouse of a deceased cancer patient.
