My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Texas
My Mother in law has been separated and living in England for 10+ years (she is English but married in Texas).
There has been no contact since moving back other than through my partner (their son).
We have just discovered that he is in hospital with cancer and he has no medical insurance.
The expected hospital stay is 2-3 months. I assume his estate will not cover the final medical bill.
I am worried that in the event of his death she would be liable for unpaid bills?
Any advice greatly accepted.
