Customer Question
I was my late...

I was my late husband's Fiduciary for years. Never a problem. He's been dead now for 6 years, and now banks and others are coming after me for money they SAY is owed. Can I be held responsible?? Never failed an audit, this is a complete mystery. Haven't moved, tried to hide; and there's no way to pay this back. They can't answer why they picked a time AFTER his death to collect. Am I being bullied or am I responsible?

Lawyer's Assistant: In what state did this occur?

California

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

Nope; this just happened

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I'm 67, have had 3 heart attacks, COPD and live in a rural area with no jobs; and I've looked.

Did you file a probate case to settle his estate?

.

When you say you were his fiduciary, what do you mean here? Were you his power of attorney... his legal guardian... a signer on his account...executor of his estate?

thanks
