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?

Today morning I was travelling to the office. Once I reached

HiToday morning I was travelling to the office. Once I reached a T junction one of the biggest truck was taking a turn in the T junction. The truck's body was coming towards my car. Inorder to esacpe from it I took reverse and just touched another small truck behind me. That car driver was threatening me and told that he will call the police and the police will arrest you. He told If I pay him 2000 dollars he wont call the police. I told its just a small touch for this I dont have this amount. Then he again threaten me. So I bring him to my home and provided a check of 2000 dollars. After that I called my insurance and they told that you dont need to pay money from your pocket as you have insurance. Hence I stopped the check after calling the bank. The guy whom I give to the check is very rude. If he is planning to come to my home I will tell I want to go with formal processing. That time I was unaware of this process. Will this cancelling of check makes problem for me. Kindly help.

City of West Allis, Wisconsin Spouse received a citation for

City of West Allis, WisconsinSpouse received a citation for DC with a weapon. He pleaded not guilty and has already met with the Assistant DA where it was not resolved. A trial date has been set.Asst DA refused to give any more than five minutes of her time. Told him she had too many other people to see, said "end of discussion" and walked out.Spouse cannot afford an attorney for a trial. He is on disability. I work though, so not sure if we would qualify for a free public defender or something like that.What should he do now? Since a trial date has been set and I am told that the date cannot be changed because they now have already started the process of sending out summons to the officers and other parties. What if other parties do not show up? Is it too late to just pay the original citation and make this go away?
