I, also, am concerned about debts. My brother opened up a charge account
joint with mom. Mom is first and he is second signee. He opened up this
account, under undue influence. Mom was diagnosed with dementia at the
time he opened this account.
My brother charges his entertainment on this account. Why should mom have
to pay for his fun? My brother is 62 years old, lives w/ mom, free/clear
and has manipulated mom his entire life. I am named executor on mom's Will. My brother seems to think that mom has Millions of dollars.
The credit card is held by the bank where mom has her auto deposit for her
pension and soc security. My brother and I have jt checking w/ mom, thou
he is living w/ mom, he has access to the checking account bank book.
Long story, short, I asked the bank about this credit card, and charges made. Since my brother is second signee, he would be responsible for those
charges after mom passes away.
What really irritates me, what if my brother passes away first? Then mom would be responsible. However, I would fight this, stating that it was opened under undue influence. Just another case to spend court fees on. Just another issue brewing with my brother... what a pain. Thank you for letting me vent....
