This can be handled by a lawyer and most probably the insurance will cover all the damages. Single lawyer can represent both of you.

I agree 100% that you should take no action until you meet with the insurer and confirm what they will be doing if anything.

I have never seen a divorce where the parties are completely aligned on every issue.

Using one lawyer is not a good idea!

I often wonder if it's worth the effort to make comments to airheads.
