My ex will not carry the life insurance ordered in our divorce agreement, how can I make him reinstate one?
My ex husband needs to keep $350K life insurance policy with me as beneficiary as part of our divorce agreement. He admitted the other day he does not have this. I told him he needs to provide this and that I want a copy of the policy. He has not answered me and I would guess he is not going to buy the policy. If something happens to him, I want my children to be protected. How can I make him buy this policy without going into debt hiring an attorney?
If your husband is not following through with the provisions in your divorce decree you have the right to bring him to court to have a judge issue a ruling requiring he comply. If you cannot hire an attorney then my advice is to either call the clerk or go o the courthouse and speak with someone directly. Many people bring these motions pro se and the clerk can help walk you through what has to be filed and how to go about doing that. I am not admitted in OH so am unsure as to the terminology but it is essentially a motion to compel. Simply make this and if your ex still refuses he can be held in contempt and possibly put in jail if he refuses. Oftentimes the threat of this gets people to follow through.
