My mom has lived with me for seven months. She has paid her bills faithfully until this month. She still has her house and not being able to make decisions. She owes now two electric bills and insurance payment. I am in the process to get guardianship but it takes awhile. Can I take a check and pay the bill sign her name initial it and pay it. I would be paying her bills out of her account. If not how do I get the bills paid without paying it myself. My income is small and she lives here for nothing. We take nothing from her. It is winter and her electric will be shut off and pipes will freeze. Her reason is she doesn't live there so she should not have to pay.
