Are you asking if you are entitled to any share of the estate when he dies?

Thank you for the clarification.

Unfortunately, there would need to be something in writing to entitle you to any portion of the estate.

Likewise, you will need to be a named beneficiary of the insurance policy to be able to claim any of that, as well (unless it is payable to the estate and your portion is in the will).

I am sorry. I wish I could tell you otherwise, but I do not want you blindsided or spinning your wheels on this.

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
