Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney and will try my best to help with your situation. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Does she have any equity in her house?
Is her only source of income SS or retirement?
Any other big assets like RVs, boats, motorcycles, etc.?
Ok, if she has under $75,000 in equity in the house, then it is exempt under the law from being liened and sold for the debt. And if her only source of income is SS, then the first $750 of that is exempt from creditors as well.
But if they actually sued her for any money, she can sue the nephew and get a judgment against him for anything that she has to pay...
