My soon to be exhusband and I had three cars together. Two

My soon to be exhusband and I had three cars together. Two cars were recently declared total loss by the insurance company. One was still being finaced by both of us and the other had both of our names on the title. My ex was the primary on the car insurance. He decided to give both cars to the insurance company without my permission. He received direct deposit payment for both cars into his personal account for both cars. Is this fraud since he didn't get my pemission to give both cars to the insurance company without my permission? He received the money for them as well? What recourse do I have at this point?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Colorado. One financed is a 2009. One paid off is 1997.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: NoJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: Registration on financed car was solely in my name. Titled car was registered in both names.

My mother in law is 96 years old. She fell recently breaking

My mother in law is 96 years old. She fell recently breaking her leg and hip and is now living in a nursing home, The Woodlands Heath Care and Rehab. Center, located in The Woodlands, Texas.In order to get her into the facility she had to forfeit all material items and funds. She complied with this except for a car she owns. It is a 1999 Cadillac, it is worth about $3500, according to Kelly Blue Book. I bought the car for her when my father in law passed so she could get around without trouble.She is having health problems, falling down, fainting, low blood pressure etc. and I do not think she should be driving in her condition. She insists she is going to get well and start driving again. The car is title is in her name but I have a lien on the car.The reason I put a lien on the car is so when she passed it would come to me and my wife so we could sell it and get some return on the purchase price and not be liable while she is diving.The problem is she will not sign the title over to me. She wants it parked in the nursing home parking lot so when she feels like driving somewhere it will be available to her. Her son has a power of attorney for her but will not sign the car over to me. I think he wants it for his son.The questions in all this are;1. Is my mother in law allowed to own the car without the Social Security knowing about it?2. Can her son sign her name on the title and license it in his name without my permission?3. Where can I find the rules and regulations for the Social Security accepting a patient into the program?

My daughter recently move from Puerto Rico to Texas. We

My daughter recently move from Puerto Rico to Texas. We tried to register her car that was shipped from Puerto Rico (a U.S. Territory) and the TXDOT is requesting a US Dot form HS-7 to complete the process. Apparently this form is a release requirement for vehicles imported from a foreign country but not for US Territories. The moving company responsible for the shipment confirmed that the HS-7 is not required. I will go back this Monday to try to register the car, but without any written documentation to show them that the form is waived, it will be very difficult to prove the point. I tried finding information on several US Government websites without any success. Can you help me?JA: What state is this in? And how old is the car?Customer: Texas. The car is 5 years oldJA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: Not yetJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: I don't think of any additional information. I found a Fact Sheet from Pennsylvania Dot that mentioned something about US territories being exempt from the imports regulations.

I was in a parking garage and was completely backed out of

I was in a parking garage and was completely backed out of my stall, stopped and shifting into drive, when another party came around the corner and hit my back driverside bumper. A security guard took both our statements. The other party stated he did not see me in time. The security report stated based on the statements and broken glass, I was fully out of the stall when the collision occurred and the other party was either driving too fast or not paying attention. His insurance services company said I was 30% at fault "for failing to keep a proper lookout while backing out". When I denied to accept their claims and stated I even had a report from security that supported my statement, they said theyou completed their own investigation and I wasn't all the way out of the stall and he had the right of way and I should have been aware of him driving up the ramp and coming around the corner. Then wanted to know when I was going to set up a time with my insurance to get the repairs done. I do not want to go through my insurance at all and have that on my insurance record and raise my rates. I also do not want to pay my insurance company deductible and not be reimbursed if I do go through mine and they do subrigation. What would be my next step to take with the I surname company? They do not give any appeal language, just saying if I do not agree to contact Nebraska Department of Insurance. Don't they legally have to give instructions on how to file an appeal? I was under the impression this was required by all insurance companies if they were denying all or part of a claim.

I am the mother of 2 children who's father passed away

i am the mother of 2 children who's father passed away yesterday unexpectedly. He is a resident of Alabama. He recently has been divorced on 8/17/16 in the state of OHIO. He was living alone, had a girlfriend, and had an apartment.The kids tried to get life insurance information from the HR department of his employer and they would not give them anything. The kids are his next of Kin. They then proceeded to get prudential's number, from the employer and made a death claim. They won't know anything for over a week, and only beneficiaries will know anything. Prudential would not give them the amount of the life insurance nor who the beneficiaries are.Their father is in a funeral home and they need to make decisions...how can they do this when they don't know who is the beneficiaries....and they have no money?The ex wife is on her way to claim stuff....there is a girlfriend there also....If the ex is still on his life insurance policy, does she still get his benefits? Or does the divorce kill that in the state of OHIO, even if the life ins and where he worked and lived was in Alabama?
