hi ray ,
thanks for the answer . unfortunately in the case of suicide , doesnt insurance denounce itself and no payout can happen ? i have an inventory list of all items we moved together to california itemized and valued , all these items were in his posession , there was a car , computer and @ 20 000 cash assets in the bank . he was self employed for his last few years alive so i think no claim to our son as an heir in writing anywhere . It seems unjust that his parents have won in family court forced visits 8 hrs every 7 weeks and a 5 minute phone call weekly (expected of a 4 yr old ) I feel like they have broken some laws here . also he was a world famous graphic designer and there were artwork archives . I an several of his work buddies want to publish a book of his artwork images , he was in the process of this when he died of suicide , not I hear from his brother they have given the cd art archives to a guy in california who is basically riding his career off my fiances artwork , this is what bothers me most , it is as if he died in vain , not even the art can be shared and appreciated nor his last wish of having a book published granted . Any additional thoughts ?
thanks in advance to your reply ...
