Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any papers in family court?

I also found a deposit slip with 869,000.00. I didn’t say anything just took a picture of it - we talked about buying a condo and was applying for a loan and needed his bank statements and learned that a friend (a man) is his beneficiary

Lawyer's Assistant: Family law varies by state. What state are you in?

Divorce

for estate purposes if married

If you write your spouse out of your will in New York, she can elect against it. A surviving spouse can waive acceptance of whatever her partner's will leaves her -- or doesn't leave her -- and instead take up to half the estate after payment of the decedent's debts, taxes and other expenses have been made. She can get half the estate if her husband left no surviving children. If he did leave children, she can accept a third of the estate and the balance goes to them. If the one-third portion is less than $50,000, the surviving spouse can take $50,000 instead. Spouses have six months to notify the court they want to elect against the will.
