Is it legal for an ex-wife of 18 years to purchase life insurance on her ex-husband?
Question Details: I might add, he had a massive stroke 3 years ago and the doctor's said that he might only have 6 months to live. We recently found out she has life insurance on him. They also have an 18 year old son, that the father raised singly, without a dime of support from the mother, however after the stroke we thought it was best that he move in with his mother.
Certainly, anyone can purchase insurance against anything, including the death of someone else, if the insurance company is willing to write it. In this case, I am assuming that the ex-husband has been providing support of some kind, and she wants to make sure that when he dies, she has some money to make up for that support ending. It is perfectly legal,
