The Unbillable Hour – October 2021 [Sponsored Content]

On the latest episode of the Unbillable Hour, Thomas “Tom” Cleator, Esq., and Deborah “Deb” Goodwin, Esq. are back to offer their legal expertise to answer the local community’s questions, for free!

In this episode they tackle these questions:

Is it illegal to tell police officers the truth? For instance: They find something illegal in your car. If you say “that’s not mine,” can you get in more trouble if they can prove it is somehow? Like, if it was a stolen tv- can you get in trouble for the lie as well as for the stealing?

My husband was married previously and has two older children. We’ve been married for eight years and have two small children together. We have life insurance policies on both of us. If something were to happen to him does the life insurance go to his first two children or only the listed beneficiary?
