I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.

if there is no will, estate, or money to pay bills in their name only, do I have to pay?
I assume you're asking whether you are personally liable for bills in your deceased spouse's name. If so, the answer depends on the nature of each bill. I suggest you consult with a local estate/probate lawyer about this.
