Hi - my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm a Family Law litigation attorney here to assist you.
First, what they've told you is absolutely not true. Being a power of attorney does not mean that you are responsible for the debts of your mother. Being a power of attorney simply means that you have the authority to act for another person.
Thus, so long as you're not an account holder and you don't agree to pay, they can't make you pay a cent.
