My elderly mother, disabled, has a significant amount

Customer Question

Hi,

My elderly mother, disabled, has a significant amount of money in a bank account, the live savings of her and my father. After my father died last year, she changed her bank account to a joint bank account so I could help pay her bills and manage her finances. A month ago, I came off of this joint bank account. At no point did I ever put money into this account.

If I was to become bankrupt within the next 2 years, could the trustee take my mothers money, some of it, harass her in any way?

Thanks
