If my husband died, am I responsible for his credit card bill?

The credit card was in his name only.

If the debt was incurred while you were married and you live in a community property state, the debt is as much his as yours, and thus you have to pay it off. Otherwise, no. If the latter, send a death notice to them so they know not to collect.

You will be held accountable for all debts incurred in your husband's name if he dies unless you can provide clear and concrete proof that another party should be held liable. This would be in the case of business expenses or when adultery is suspected or proven.

Credit cards are responsible for the particular person only. Only for loans such as housing loans and land loans you will be responsible, when your husband is died. Credit card is given for his personal use only, for his salary and his business transactions. U will not be responsible for it.

Yes, generally all assets and liabilities incurred during a marriage are jointly held by both partners in the relationship. However, if the Credit card was opened by the husband before the marriage, and he didn't use it to acquire any more debt after the marriage you may not be liable. Also the laws can vary between different states.

If your name is also on the credit card, then you also responsible for the credit card debt. If you are not then his estate still is, anything he owns.
