In my husband's divorce settlement, 2003, his ex wife was awarded his life insurance policy. The life insurance policy is a term life policy. He still has the same policy however, we changed the beneficiary from his ex wife to myself. He and I have been married for nine years. If something were to happen to him who has the legal right to the death benefits?

It sounds to me like you might be facing a lawsuit from the ex-wife for violating the terms of the divorce settlement.
