My sister was suing my mother over property, my mother called my husband and told him she is sending him money that she wants me to have for our family. She continued to say, she has never given us anything and that she feels guilty for it. She had been for 20yrs paying for everything for my sister and her 2 children. She stated she was scared my sister was trying to get all her money now and wanted to make sure we got some of it. My husband question my mother on many occasions saying "Are you sure you want us to have this? What will you live on?" She assured my husband she wanted to & that she receives 2 checks a month and has plenty to live on.
We are in very bad financial debt so we were so happy to get this unexcepted help. We used the money to pay off credit cards & loans. We are still in debt but it helped. Now my sister is saying we must return the money & my mom is lying saying she asked us to "hold" it for her. She NEVER said that. She is bullied by my sister and once my sister found out she couldn't get money from mom when she sued her. She then turned around & embraced my mother acting as if she cares & now says my mom has dementia & I must return the money. We don't have it! We paid bills! We have proof. Plus my Mom said we could use it. Legally, do you have to return a gift? There is nothing stating we were supposed to "hold" it.
Please help me
