My mother in law has been living with us for 5 yrs and me and her son bought a house a yr ago. She's been disabled for over 3 months but just passed suddenly. She received social secruity and we have 3 kids, me, my husband, and my brother and I'm a waitress. Long story short my mother in law paid half the mortgage and helped pay for groceries because I pay all the bills besides the mortgage and car note. My question is, she just got her money on this past Wednesday and so her son and I needed help paying for her funeral arrangements. The funeral isn't until next week and we needed help paying the mortgage so will we get in trouble for using some of her money because we dont make enough without having to do that?
