The date on the loan paper is Jan. 24, 2003 and my to be Ex's mother signed portions of the loan (Open-End Mortgage) on the 24th also. My Power of Attorney is dated and signed by me on Jan. 27th. Who is responsible for this mix up of allowing the loan to go through? Also, if my attorney only practices Family Law, should she competant in matters like this 2nd Mortgage? Sorry about the confusion but
I am responsible for my debt but she is walking away ( my to be EX) with not being accountable for her debts.
