    I have been separated for over 5 years now and settlements of assets was done thorugh the courts but we have not got a divorce. If my ex dies, can I be forced to pay for the funeral expenses? Can they sell of my assets to fund it?

    Thank you

    I think the cost is covered by the deceased person's estate. Can anyone else confirm?

    Thank you for your information and direction on where to get specific help. It is very much appreciated. As the Ex has no assets I will definitely look into this further. Thanks Again!
