In life, only death and taxes are certain. But what happens to a decedent’s debt after they pass? This presentation will outline various avenues for collecting debts upon the death of a resident, as well as debt collection rules. We will also cover the process of opening an estate as a creditor, outline the probate process, and provide insights into whether opening an estate is necessary and/or cost-effective.
