Insurance Question from Bessemer, AL
Asked on 08/06/2012
Homeowners, Divorce and Fire My ex-husband and I divorced in 2004. Per the divorce (completed in North Carolina), he retained the marital home in Alabama; however, per the decree he was responsible to pay to take my name off of the deed and mortgage. My ex-husband failed to take my name off of the deed and mortgage. Recently (2012), the marital home burned down (complete loss) and it appears my ex-husband had me removed from the homeowners insurance after the fire occurred as the 1st check had my name and his. As I am still on the deed and mortgage, can my name be legally removed from homeowners insurance?

this is a legal question, not insurance
