I am a little confused as to your situation. I understand that your partner wishes to overturn a divorce granted by the court, which he cannot do.
What appears to be the issue regarding the Insurance Policy?
When we divorced, I took out insurance policies that in the event that I die, the boys would have a sum of money and would not need to worry. It's strange to me too but he says that he should have more control IF I do die on the money or should have control of the money.
I do not agree with him.
If you have an Insurance Policy and you are divorced from your husband, if you were to die, the insurance policy would fall into the rest of your estate and be administered in accordance with your Will, if you have made one. In the WIll, you can direct your Executors to use the money from the Insurance policy for the maintenance and education of your sons. Your ex-husband should have no control over it and would not be entitled to it as you are no longer married to him.
Have you mad a Will?
I hope this helps.
