    Default Liability for Spouse's Medical Expenses

    Have all my assets in a Trust, home, and my retirement. What am I liable for in the way of my spouses extra expense for medical issues not covered by our current insurance. Can my personal assets be attached? Thanks

    We need to know what state you are in.

    What about Kansas?

    Potentially yes. See the explanation of the Doctrine of Necessaries in St. Francis Regional Med. Center, Inc. v. Bowles, 836 P. 2d 1123 (1992).

    I am a California resident. Last year my wife went to Cedars Sinai Hospital without me signing as financially responsible, using her own independent insurance policy.

    I am now being chased by a collection agency called Progressive management Systems. The reason they are quoting is that California is a community property state and we were married at the time the service was delivered.

    Please let me know if this is true or false. Thanks
