How Do You Settle Debts If the Estate Has No Money?

Trying to settle debts after a loved one passes can be a daunting task. However, there are a number of steps that can help you pay off all your debts.

State Laws

First of all, you should be aware of the laws in your state that govern how to pay off a deceased person’s debt. This is not something that you should do without the help of a qualified attorney.


There are a number of reasons why an estate may not have enough money to pay off all your debts. For example, if the deceased person had a mortgage, He/She will need to pay off the mortgage. If the deceased person had a credit card, you will need to pay off any balances on those cards. If you have an insurance policy, you may be able to cover your debts.

Medical Expenses

You should also know that your estate may be liable for medical expenses that were incurred by the deceased. This can be difficult if you have a spouse or dependent child.


In most cases, you will have to wait for your loved one’s estate to be probated before you can be paid. If you have an estate that isn’t going through probate, you should contact your creditors to find out how you can settle your debts.

Hire a Lawyer

Once you know who your creditors are, you need to contact them and let them know that you are the executor of the estate. Alternatively, you can hire a lawyer to handle this for you.
