Served with complaint
My friend has been served with a civil complaint for a Credit Card debt incurred by her late husband. She was an authorized user, but states she did not sign on the account. The real estate she owns was transferred to her in 1995 and he died in 2003 having no interest in the real estate.
The Credit Card company is suing claiming that she was on the account but can provide no proof that she was other than her name appearing on the statement after her late husband died. Can this debt be enforced? Is there any way she can protect the real estate and personal property she owns?
She is considering filing a quit claim deed to transfer the property from her name to her name and my name jointly. Would this protect the real estate from being put up for sheriff’s sale? What about the personal property?
Thanks for any advice you can give.
