Have Military Law Questions? Ask a Military Lawyer.
If I sue his estate I will be have to sue the insurance policy he left to my children and I do not want to do that. The divorce specifically said that we both agreed they would get that money. I had no idea that the military required that since he had my name and social on everything and he paid the premiums right up until he died. What becomes of that money that he paid in? I believe that he intended for me to have it thru implied consent since he continued paying. Since he and I remained friends I can not believe he did not want me to have it. Even as he was dying we spoke of his coming and staying with me during recovery. He was an alcoholic and died from it ...does the government send this paperwork to him or me? I never got anything. I was told I could appeal by a guy at Randolph AFB but that it would have to go to DC and would take 4 to 6 months...I will lose my home in that time and really do not know where I will go or what I will do now. Has anyone ever won on appeal? In 4 more yrs had he lived he would have had it paid up...thanks so much for your advice
Not what I wanted to hear but the truth I am sure. I wish I knew if anyone had ever won on an appeal. Also unfortunately the person who represented me was a lawyer friend of my son who teaches law at Charleston. If I sue her will it hurt her as an attorney? I really do not want to do that but if all else fails I might have to....it will not win any points from my son Jonathan but he and other son will be fine with the money they will be getting. If I do sue her for malpractice and I hate the thought should I find a military lawyer to handle it?
Thanks so much I wish I had you around when this was all being done! Please say a lil prayer for me and God bless you for the work you do!
