my mother needs to file bancruptcy. my father is in a nursing home because of alzheimers. my mothers attorney said she needs to file for financial conservatorship over my fathers social security income before they can go forward with the bancruptcy. is this true or is social security off limits to creditors?

Social Security is EXEMPT from creditors. Here's the TN exemptions:


Your mother might only have to prove that the money in a bank account is from an exempt source.

I feel for you... my father passed away from Alzheimers in 1989. They were married 48 years, fortunately, my mother didn't lose her home when she had to put him in a nurshing home. I'm sorry your mother must go thru something like this.
