I need to know what state you are in to answer your question, please?
The case is based in West Virginia. The long and short of it is my ex husband kept me on his life insurance policy as the beneficiary of $100,000.00. His son and my son (by previous marriage) were listed as the contingency's. Because some states automatically deny ex-spouses from any benefits, my step son is trying to do the same, although that is not the situation in WV. We have filed the response to an interpleadary, but my step son has not. My lawyer said we had 20 days to respond, which we did. My step son still hasn't and it's been nearly 2 months. We have a case number, but absolutely no activity. My lawyer even told me "this is not a priority". Well, it is to me! Now my lawyer is saying it may "take years". What the heck??? I think these two lawyers should be reported somewhere. This just is not fair.
