I am newly separated from my husband. My insurance agent has

I am newly separated from my husband. My insurance agent has just signed me up for a whole life insurance policy that also builds a cash value and allows the option to borrow from it without penalties. My question is, is the wrong time to purchase this? My husband and I do not have children. We have a house - not many other assets. We have always kept our bank accounts separate. He does not want to divorce and has made it known that he is not willing to cooperate with the divorce process - so this could drag on for a little bit. I live in AZ

I am a 26 year old male that lives in the DC Metro area.

Hi there. I am a 26 year old male that lives in the Washington DC Metro area. Thank you for your time to answer my question. I have been working as an IT Consultant for 4+ years now. I have been married for almost 3 years. My wife and I may be getting a divorce. I bought a home less than a year ago (July 2016) for my family (mother, father, 3 brothers, and my wife and I) to live at. The down-payment was made by me and my father. All closing expenses were paid for by me. All mortgage payments, house expenses (internet, electricity, gas, etc) have been paid by me. My wife did not contribute to any of the payments and she only worked as a part-time Realtor but did not make more than a few hundred dollars which she did not contribute to the home. We do not have any kids and there was no abuse.My question is does she have any right to try to right for my home or my money?Thanks for any advice.

My mother passed away July 2014. Before her death she hired

My mother passed away July 2014. Before her death she hired a lawyer who came to the hospital in the ICU to set up a trust for her. He asked all the questions of her about the division of property, etc. Unfortunately, before she was able to sign the Trust (1 week later) she became septic & passed away. Father had passed away 2 years previous so only children as heirs. Mom was excluding one of the children from her Trust as she had conspired with my Dad to be soul beneficiary of life insurance when he passed. Is there any grounds that Mom's last wishes be upheld as there was an attorney present & 3 daughters & ultimately a Trust created & attorney was paid $4,500.00 which he still has? MissouriJA: Since estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: MissouriJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: The estate was moved into probateJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: This question was asked of the PR appointed to mom's estate & she just said well doctors would have to say she was of sound mind. But PR is unwilling to pursue anything of this nature. Also, is there any way to move a estate in probate out of a county to another venue?

I am married considering divorce. I own two homes that I have never lived in with my wife because she chose not to cohabitate. Both deeds are held solely in my name and she has never contributed to either home in any way. I'm the only income earner between us. I was wondering if I gifted my property and stock Investments to my mother and then she gifted them back to me a month later, would my investments and property then be considered gifts that are non-marital property? I live in the state of Maine.JA: Because real estate law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?Customer: I live in Maine but one house is in Georgia and the other in MaineJA: Has anything been filed or reported?Customer: No divorce has been filed yet.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: We also have children and I would like to avoid paying alimony if possible. I currently contribute to her college tuition.
