The letter you mentioned is not at the bottom of the page. Or, perhaps I just didn't see it? I don't believe bankruptcy is an option because she is unable to appear in court, though perhaps I could as her power of attorney? Plus, she took out cash advances a few months before entering the nursing home to pay the family back quite a bit of money she owed them and get her house repaired.
She thought she had a terminal condition, now we find out she doesn't and we are stuck making the payments on $30,000 she borrowed. WOW !!!
What a mess.
We realize you are not licensed in Florida but this is "general" stuff and if you could just give us an idea of what we might think about, we won't hold your feet to the fire. We just need some guidance.
I realize I'm asking some additional questions and will add money to my original fee to pay for your time.
Thank you !!!
