My sister's husband committed suicide this week and I am trying to help her out with several things.
First, they filed for divorce about a month ago, but moved back into together about a week after and have been living together since. They left several messages with attorney to stop process and she found out that it has not yet been signed by a judge. Is she still legally married? They are still legally married.
Or considered his "wife" at the time of his death? Yes
Onto the financial part of it: HE HAS NO WILL! He has a lgroup life insurance policy($96,000) through his company and there is no beneficiary named. He also has a 401k($31,000) with no beneficiary named either, but we have been told by the company that this defaults to my sister. It will go into probate since there is no named beneficiary.
It is our unanimous opinion that you are damn right and it should be obvious to any moron that your (ex) (SOís ex) (boss) (landlord) (local police) should be immediately (jailed) (fired) (reprimanded) (arrested) (demoted) (shot) (evicted).
In fact, you are so astonishingly correct in this matter, it will not surprise us one bit if you are offered a generous settlement, because, by golly, thatís just how it should be.
