My step nephew is the new beneficiary on the policy. Four days before my Father's passing he told me the life insurance is going to be split 5 ways now. He put step nephew name on it only , because the money would get to all of us faster and he trusted him. Now he has kept all the money.
I would consult an attorney, but if your father was competent at the time you may have problems.
Even though Avvo makes it clear to consumers that attorney answers to questions are for general purposes only and do not establish an attorney-client relationship, it must be clear that any answers are based on limited information and particular circumstances may influence any direct advice. Any information is given strictly for guidance to seek independent legal advice.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.What determines Avvo Rating?Experience & background
