I'm going through a strange situation. I had a vehicle, which I owned free & clear, and it was awarded temporary use to my ex commonlaw wife until we proceed with the divorce, she then wrecked the vehicle. The insurance company said it was totaled, and issued a check, but because she caused a fuss, they issued it in both mine and her name even though the insurance was in my name and I made the insurance payments. I offered her a portion of the check but she is refusing to sign it even if I write her a check at that time for the amount. We are court ordered not to be in the same place at the same time, therefore we cannot go to the bank together. I need this money to help pay for a lawyer to get a divorce. What can I do? Can I force the insurance company to reissue the check to just my name
