Question: Is it true that I don’t have to pay my mother’s unpaid medical debt since all her assets are in a family trust?
Answer: You have no liability to pay a parent’s medical bills, regardless of what was done with her assets, unless you sign a writing undertaking to pay them. Whether the trust assets can be reached by creditors is not something that can be answered without examination of the trust.
