You all can take a look at my past posts and that get you more familiar with what is going on with me. My mother is now in a home. She cannot walk anymore. She is 92 years old. For about 25 years she has been married to my step-dad. My step-dad and I don't like each other. My mother has apparently fallen twice since she has been in this home an my step-dad chose to not tell me about it.
The reason why I don't care for my step-dad is that he married my mother solely for her money; there was no love there. My step-dad stole $13,000 in cash from my mother. He apparently knew where she had it hidden. My mother is the one who told me this. Oh, my mother threatened to divorce him, etc when this happened, but she didn't. Ok, now over these whole 25 years my mother also told me that my step-dad has been giving money (his money) to about 5 different women. As you would know by my posts my step-dad is totally blind. These women that he gives money to are women who have been in and out of prison for drugs, theft, fraud, they are still on
drugs. When my mother found out about my step-dad doing these things, of course she again threatened to divorce him, but then she'd back off.
The lates thing now is that I found out from someone who is in the know that my step-dad posted a $10,000 bond for one of these women because apparently this woman has gotten herself in trouble again, and I guess a friend fo hers approached my step-dad and asked him to post this bond. Now, what comes to light is that this woman has skipped town and my step-dad will be left paying the $10,000.00. I was told that my step-dad doesn't have that kind of money. If my mother was in her right mind, I'd tell her what is going on, and then she actually might do something about it. But I won't.
Ok, now, here is some history. My mother and my step-dad DO keep their monies separate. However, they do own rental properties together. So, that being the case my step-dad keeps one checkbook that is in both of their names to cover rental expenses on these rentals that they own together. Now, here is a problem I see happening. My step-dad doesn't have $10,000.00 so what would stop him from writing a check to cover this bond from my mother's and his account. Yes, I do know that this account is in both of their names, but lets say there is only $12,000.00 in the account. So, he really would only be entitled to $6,000 from that account. But, I can see a problem here if he wrote a check for $10,000.00 from that account. I would have no recourse here at all.
