Thanks for your patience. Generally, FL law is not going to cover this particular situation; however, contract law will. If you receive a check from the insurance company, one of the most important things to find out is whether your acceptance of that check is final or whether you would be able to request more money as a result. In many cases, if you accept a settlement check, then you are bound to that particular check amount. On the other hand, if the insurance company says that they will give you a check so you can put a deposit on work or actually try to finish the work, but you can request more money under you policy if necessary, then you will be able to accept it. What's going to be crucial is going to be understanding the terms of your agreement for accepting that check.

What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?

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.

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.
