If my husband dies in a house fire, what, if any, of the insurance preoceeds should go to his daughter?
Question Details: My husband and I had a house fire last month and he lost his life. He had joint custody of his daughter, with the mother being the custodial parent. The only assets I now currently have is the insurance check for the house, which is 339K, I also have 190K that was deposited into my checking as a portion of the insurance for the house. The mortgage on the home is 170K. Once that is paid off, I will have the remainder of the 190K(which was paid out as a personal belongings portion of the insurance to replace what was inside the house) and the 339K. The remaining balance is supposed to be used to rebuild my home but I am concerned as to what portion of the remaining amount will go to my stepdaughter.
