Assistant: What steps have been taken so far?
Customer: ok a approx 5years ago an ex partner wanted to cash in an insurance policy he’d paid infor years ,in order to do so he needed his ex wife to also sign ,she refused 3 times to do so ,so out of frustration he signed it himself ,and received £30.000
Assistant: What steps have been taken? Have any papers been filed in family court?
Customer: none
Assistant: Has she talked to a lawyer about this yet?
Customer: Not that I’m aware of ,I don’t believe she got any money from it ,but he may have paid her something and not told me
Assistant: Anything else you want the Lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: Basically could this come back on him .and how serious is it .Thank you
