My spouse's parent is in their mid 90's, mentally competent. Spouse's sibling gets large chunks of money from parent, at least 10K over past year or so, that we have documented proof of. The ssib is not computer literate, so we have kept tabs on a 3 way checking acct. my spouse & their sib has w/ the parent. Accidentally discovered a check to sib & have followed since.
Parent doing okay, but twice in past year came close to nursing home status.
My question--if spouse's sib would decease (we live in a filial obligation state) would my spouse then be financially responsible for parent, even tho' the sibling got all that (and probably more) money gifted to them?
Thanks in advance. Guess I think of goofy things when in the shower.
