    You may be able to get paid for the property damage to your car if the payment to your husband was not authorized. If your husband did not own your car, there may be an argument in this regard. But you may be better off trying to get the money from him in the divorce action. Your attorney can advise you.

    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.

    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 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...

    The doctors' insurance company is not required to pay you anything until there is a judgment against the doctor. You can sue the doctors but not the insurance company. Get representation.

    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.

    You have two options, pursue the owner/driver or put a claim on your insurance. If you put a claim on your insurance, your insurance company can then fight it out with the other company and perhaps get you back your deductible. If you are unsatisfied, contact an attorney.
