Thanks for the clarification.
Since the insurance
policy was purchased with community property funds, you and your husband own it equally (each owning half or 50 percent). This means that while your husband can designate a beneficiary other than you for 50 percent of the property, you are entitled to the other 50 percent of the policy regardless of who he names.
So, if he named this other person as the sole beneficiary, you are still entitled to 50 percent and the other person would receive 50 percent (the amount that your husband could determine what to do with his half of the life insurance policy).
This is because under community property, you and your husband both have equal shares. While it was legal for him to name another beneficiary without your consent (that piece of information you hear is wrong), you are still entitled to half of the life insurance policy.
You should contact the insurance company to ensure that you receive the 50 percent of the policy to which you are entitled.
I realize the above information is (at least in part) not what you wanted to hear and I sincerely XXXXX XXXXX had better news to give you, but I hope you appreciate an honest and direct answer to your question. It would be unprofessional of me and unfair to you to provide you with anything less.
Please let me know if you have any follow up or clarifying questions as I want to ensure that you are completely satisfied with my service.
If not, please remember to rate my answer positively so I get paid for my work.
Thanks and best of luck!
