This wasn't supposed to happen

My kid sister got served with a summons Friday night. We are being sued over my mother's house. This is what two (count 'em -- two!) lawyers told me was unlikely because we never signed anything related to her reverse mortgage. While we have no legal liability, it's a drag -- and an expensive one -- to be called into court like this.

Naturally this happened at 9:30 PM on a Friday night, when I can't get reach my lawyer. So I'm trying not to freak myself out. And I'm not successful.

The good news, such as it is, is that my kid sister was very pleasant throughout the call. This, after all the shit she put me through over the past month. I don't get it. Oh well. I can't fixate on it now.

Neither my older sister nor I have received our summons because the mortgage company never gave the process server our correct addresses. I imagine this will change, because they do actually have the addresses.

I am exhausted. But that doesn't mean I can sleep.


  1. Will this ever, ever end for you? Bleah. (HUGS)

  2. Oh what a mess. I'm sorry this is dragging on and on.

    What a headache. Hopefully this will be over soon.

  4. i just don't see how they can sue someone who had nothing to do with your mothers choice on getting the loan. i think this whole reverse mortage stuff is a scam! praying this will end for you all is terrible.

  5. I'm so sorry this is happening. Keep on being strong. I'll be praying for you.
