Our expert says:
Disgraceful to all the other family members who promised to help, financially and otherwise, and then failed to do so. It is not reasonable ( nor, it seems, possible ) to expect you to pay all the bills - presumably for the parental house and the mother ? Tell your greedy sister in law to pay her share of the financial burden, and that if she comes to your house, you will call the police and lay criminal mcharges against her, and remind her that threatening to harm someone is in itself a criminal offense. And go to court and get an interdict against her.
How can they think that you are making money out of paying the family debts ? Is there money in your father's estate that could repay you ( keep careful records of all you have spent on him and mother both before and after his death ) ? And make sure debtors including the municipality are informed that he has died and the estate is not yet settled.
As Liza says, you must discuss this with your husband, who should be much morwe actively protecting you and stopping all this nonsense by his family.
Actually, I don't understand how in any way the council or others would consider YOU responsible for your father in law's or his estate's debts ? surely the debtor must be his estate / his executor, and his DIRECT family.
