Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.

Have you signed anything agreeing to be a cosigner or to be a guarantor of his debts?

no he lives here at no cost to him
Expert:  Barrister replied 3 months ago.

Then no, he is legally an adult and you have no legal duty to support him and no liability for any debts that he may incur..

.

As long as you don't agree to be liable for him, you can't be held liable for him..

thanks

thank you how can I print this
Expert:  Barrister replied 3 months ago.

You are very welcome. Happy to help any time..

When I want to save something, I will copy it and then paste it into a Word document and save it to my computer for later use.

.

You could try to hit "print screen" and that might work as well...
