Good afternoon,

Condolences on your loss. Yes, you are the primary beneficiary, so you inherit the entire policy. From what it sounds like, your son was the contingent beneficiary -he would only inherit the policy if you had predeceased your spouse.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

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.
