I have a feeling that I am gonna need someone like a Brooklyn Accident Attorney, or even a good defense attorney.
My brother-in-law, who shall remain outside of my home and other places has decided that he is going to be a pain in the assets. Just for my thought alone, I might need that attorney. Let me just say that they are not to be made out loud.
Mom’s bills have been something that I have had to take care or for a while now (make that months), since she kept forgetting them. I would come over to her apartment, make out the checks, sign, and then mail them to make sure the bills were paid.
Because of her going into the hospice, the thought that her account might get frozen at the time of her death, I got out a big portion of what she had in there. I left enough to take care of the bills that would come out by automatic draft. I have paid out quite a lot of that money for her bills and I thank God that I have receipts for them. Dearest brother-in-law all of a sudden decided that he wants to keep track of her money and did not even ask why this was done and jumped to bad ideas. The money that has not been spent on her needs, bills, and expenses will be put back in tomorrow. Let him take care of her checking account and her bills, NOW.
I am very glad to let him have the hassle, and to wash my hands of him and other things. We will still try to keep contact with her in spite of HIM. I actually wish him luck in dealing with the financial end. I will not sign any more of her checks for her. He can take care of it.
5-18-11UPDATE He apologized to my husband, not to the one accused of being the thief. He has refused to handle the account, so I am stuck with it. Mom does not need any drama right now, I am keeping my peace. It is very tough and emotionally draining. I am trying to support my husband through this pain of loss, and trying to keep things in order. I feel that I have aged considerably in the last few weeks.
