Am I liable for my deceased husbands back child support and taxes owed from bankruptcy?
I'm from the state of MD. My husband, who I was married to for 4 years, died unexpectedly. My husband has been paying on back child support and paying the IRS for a bankruptcy - both ocurring before we got married. All our assets are in my name only, since I owned them prior to us getting married. (he also did not want anything put in his name to help protect me.) My house and cars are in my name, and we had no credit cards. In addition, although I have a will and life insurance policy, he did not have either one of them. (I am finding this out now.) I want to confirm that I should not have to pay off his back child support nor his IRS taxes owed due to his bankruptcy. (in fact, our 2011 taxes were filed separate, as well.) thank you in advance, Sandy
