Chase Visa debt after father's death

My father died recently. I am the only surviving family member. We live in Florida. My father had added me as an authorized user on his Chase Visa. I received a card with my name. I don't know if he gave them my address (the card was actually mailed to him) but I know he did not know my social sec number. During some tough times a couple of years ago, I used up the credit limit of the card. I have been making the minimum monthly payments online out of my checking acct. This card has not appeared on my credit report. Will they come after me if I stop making the payments? There is no "estate", he died with no assets, no life insurance and about $500 in his bank account. Since they have my bank info, can they go after my bank account? What will happen if I stop making the payments? Thanks for any insight.
