    Ask for the insurance company's damage estimate with the scope of their work, and have it reviewed by an independent contractor. Also, ask your homeowner's insurance company to look at the damage and give you an estimate.

  2. I want a divorce from my wife who has been in a mental institution since 09/2001.

    the divorce could happen either place, but since you are going to bring it, it will have to be in Oklahoma, unless you can meet the residency requirements of the state where W is. You will need an attorney. She will need a guardian. You may want to discuss the matter with the staff of the hospital; they probably have seen more of these cases than any attorney has. I suggest you contact the Oklahoma legal referral service here: http://www.lrsok.com/ They can set up an initial meeting with...

  3. Life insurance proceeds after suicide

    I know of no way to force grandma to give son her money before she wants to. Generally, life insurance proceeds are not part of the marital estate because they are not acquired during the marriage -- the proceeds appear only after death, and marriage does not continue beyond the lives of the parties involved. It may be that grandma believes she made a mistake in giving sister the money when she was 18, and doesnt want to make the same mistake twice. 15 year olds often believe adults are...

    You aren't going to get to delete the recorded statement. You can ask that the record be corrected; or you could ask that another recorded statement be taken to clarify the record. Suggest you hire an attorney in your area to work on this case. Trying to delete a recorded statement will cause all sorts of red flags to appear.

    Generally, the right to change the beneficiary belongs to the insured, who obviously cannot change it after he dies.

    If you had liability insurance at the time of the accident, you should immediately inform your insurance carrier of the judgment and ask them to pay or to have the default vacated; the insurance company can pay for the attorney.

    Your mom had a parking lot accident, and likely did not tell the other owner what happened because she did not see any damage. The questions are how much is her deductible; and whether its worthwhile to make a claim when she will end up paying more for the repairs in insurance than she would if she just paid for the repairs herself. The insurance company can deny the claim if the claim is false.

  8. Insurance does not want to pay the damage on my car

    If you have collision coverage on your vehicle, you can file a claim with your insurance company; your insurance company will pay for the damage, less any deductible. They can go after the other driver and her insurance company. You can also go ahead and file suit against the other driver, and get a response that way. If you do not get anywhere, contact a lawyer with experience in handling insurance car wreck claims.

  9. Can employer deduct health insurance premiums from six months ago?

    Of course the employer can deduct premiums from your paycheck to pay for health insurance. The better course would have been to begin deducting premiums from Jan 1; but I am not aware of any provision which would preclude the employer from catching up on premiums due.
