Don't forget to separate car insurance in divorces

37300095_S.jpgIllinois couples who are ending their marriages must disentangle their finances from each other. One aspect that should not be overlooked is separating the car insurance policies. There are several things that people who are getting divorced should keep in mind in this regard.

People are not allowed to remove their spouses from their car insurance policies without first obtaining their consent. People who wish to remove their spouses will need to get them to sign consent forms before they will be allowed to remove them. If the spouses are still living at the same address, their liability will still be shared. This makes it important to start by getting separate addresses.

In order to make matters the easiest, both spouses should have cars that are titled in only their names. If there is a listed co-owner on a vehicle, the co-owner has to be listed as an additional insured on the policy. One of the spouses will need to get a new insurance policy and should start looking. That spouse should make certain to have a new policy in place before agreeing to remove his or her name from the joint insurance policy so that there are no gaps in insurance.

The property division portion of divorces can involve many considerations. An experienced family law attorney may help clients to think about all of the steps that are involved with disentangling their finances from those of the spouses. Through negotiation, the attorney may help make the process easier by securing agreements to complete the necessary tasks that may be involved. It is important for people to remember everything that they need to take care of in order to separate themselves completely so that they can avoid financial entanglements that could harm them later in the future.
