    Answered . A verbal agreement can be enforceable provided it is not an agreement that is governed by the Statute of Frauds. Examples of agreements that must be in writing include:
    1. Agreement to pay debts of a third party; 2. Any agreement made in consideration of marriage; 3. Contracts for sale of real property or an interest in real property; 4. Any lease for real property longer than one year; 5. Any agreement parties do not contemplate will be completed within one year from date of the contract; and 6. Any guarantee, warranty, or assurance of results of any medical, surgical or diagnostic procedure.

    Other statutes also require agreements to be in writing for the following: 1. premarital agreements, 2. agreements to make a will and agreements concerning rights of a spouse in the estate of the other spouse and 3. contracts for the sale of goods for $500.00 or more are also to be in writing.

    Since your question does not specify the nature of the agreement for the payment of bills, more information would be needed to adequately answer the questions
