Helping out

October 11th, 2010 by Questions

My 73 yr old mother is filing for bankruptcy. She has had to quit here job because of illness and can no longer pay off her large credit card debt. She has no assets and her pension is only about $800.00 a month which won`t be nearly enough to get by each month. My question is, am i allowed to help her out(paying her food costs and bills) during the bankruptcy? No money will be exchanged, just paying for basic costs of living so she can get by each month. It would not exceed the government set threshold.

Certainly you may help your mother – it’s unfortunate that at 73 years old she has to worry about her finances.
