Customer Question

ok my first divorce attorney told me there are certain rules about changing the beneficiary on life insurance policies. "Obviously there are certain rules that prohibit Tom from changing life insurance beneficiaries for his spouse while they are married."

Thank you for your post.

What exactly is your question?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
So if those are the rules, how could he change the policy??
Expert:  Dimitry K., Esq. replied 6 years ago.

We may be miscommunicating. I have no idea if he did or did not, and why I suggested that you simply contact the insurance company and find out for yourself. As for how he could change the policy, it is simple--he could have theoretically ignored the conditions and send a beneficiary change form to the insurance company. If he did, that is a good thing for you because you could then contact the insurance company with a copy off the decree, and use that to invalidate his transfer (by essentially claiming that due to court limitations, such a beneficiary change would be void and forbidden).

Good luck.
