Following the divorce my ex-wife would like to become a co-owner or receive a guaranteed part of the death benefit. We have no minor children. Can a judge force me to give her anything other than one-half of the cash surrender value?

There are many factors that would determine the answer to your question. I would need to know what stage of the divorce proceedings you're in, cash value of the policy, who the current beneficiary might be, is this a first or a second marriage, what other assets might be owned during this marriage. If you are already enjoined from making changes to this policy you would first have to seek Court approval. I look forward to heraing from you.
