If father drinks ,smokes & takes debts from market after marriage of daughter then who will be responsible for debts ? Will it make any difference if he says debts were taken for his livelihood and medical treatment?

Dear Sir

   No one is liable if father did such debts unless such faehr left any property then one can  recover their debts by  attaching htose properties only i.e. called deceased estate

Dear Client, If those debts are contracted by father for his bad habits then son and daughter are not responsible for these debts. If it is for family necessity, such as daughter's marriage, I f the debts were taken for livelihood and medical treatment of father you can make your married son and daughter accountable and responsible for payment of these debts If they expressly undertake to pay personally these debts.If you appreciate this answer please click the thank you button on this forum.
