So, I know a lot of you are lawyers and I promised a buddy of mine I would ask you legal types. Basically, he's going through a messy divorce. This has been going on since mid-late last year and he dropped her from his insurance because she cheated on him, left him, and said she was going to file the divorce papers.
She did leave him, but kept the money he gave her to file the paperwork (I know, dumb move. I told him as much).
Anyway, when she left, she moved to Denton county. Skip ahead several months and she has now finally filed the paperwork. But she is telling my buddy that she is going to take him to court because she wants to remain on his insurance. Either that or he has to "co-sign" a loan for her to have some dental work done. Everyone in their right mind knows she is not going to pay the loan so he would be responsible for it.
I kind of skipped around a little, but in Denton County you cannot drop your spouse from insurance if divorce papers have been filed. The problem with her claim is that he dropped her before the papers were filed.
All that to ask this: Does she have a case against him? If she does, he is just going to suck up the $850 for the dental work. If she doesn't, he's going to tell her to go f*** herself.
Keeping all of this in mind, his current girlfiend is now pregnant and $850.00 is not chump change he can throw around. So it's not like some of you rich types where that much money is dispensible.
Thank you for your patience in me for this. I know we try to keep this related to sports, but I know this to be a great and knowledgable community.
PB, if you feel this is too iffy and need to delete this thread I'll understand.
