Assets: vehicle valued at $5000 after it is paid off by "death insurance" - no named beneficiary; 401k $6000; Bank accounts: less than $500 combined. Home is mortgaged and underwater; not technically an asset. Debts: $7k Funeral/burial costs (paid by myself); $100k+ in medical bills over last 8 months, all related to final illness; other debts - credit cards, medical collections, student loans etc - about $30k. If I file small estate affidavit in order to claim funeral/burial costs I've paid and then rest would go to creditors (medical) until estate can be considered insolvent and “closed”, would I really need an attorney's assistance? How could I limit the expense to do this? Or should I walk away from it all?
