property is in Texas not homstededThe medical bills were incurred during the marriage , the property is in Texas and is in my husbands name. No judgements have been filed.
There are some unanswered questions here that make it difficult to give a definite response. When were the medical bills incurred? Before or after marriage? Do any of the creditors already have a judgment against you for the unpaid medical bills? Where is the inherited house located? I would visit with an experienced probate or collections attorney to advise you. Good Luck!
In whose name is the inherited house titled? More facts are necessary to provide a meaningful answer and you will need to consult with an attorney who handles collections to advise you.
In very general terms, separate real property of one spouse is not liable for the debts of another spouse. Because your husband inherited the house, it is his separate real property.
DISCLAIMER: This is not specific legal advice and does not establish an attorney/client relationship.
If the house is titled in your husband's name, then the creditors should not be able to file a lien on the property since it is his separate property and not a community asset.
