Divorced wife of 8 months refuses to sign flood insurance…

Customer Question
Divorced wife of 8...

Divorced wife of 8 months refuses to sign flood insurance for 5 months, significantly delaying repair of home, divorce signed in July 2017, flood occurred Labor Day weekend from Hurricane Harvey in Houston. How can I force her to sign?

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps has the wife taken so far? Has she prepared or filed any paperwork?

No, it seems to be a passive aggressive attitude, she lives in an apartment now.

Lawyer's Assistant: Has she talked to a TX lawyer about this?

No but I have and he has tried to persuade her w/o threating but no success. She suffers from Bi-Polar disorder which is the root cause of our divorce, it's been a problem for about 25 years,

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

There are no minor children, I have been retired for about 18 months after practicing Pediatrics for 44 years.
