Should I renew my car policy with my soon-to-be ex?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Shannon on December 29, 2020

I'm divorcing my husband and I plan to buy a house. My soon-to-be ex and I are getting a discount on our car insurance, but the policy's up for renewal soon. Should I renew the same policy or should I get my own and bundle it with the home insurance for the new house?

Divorce can be a long and complicated process, and a very costly one as well. It is best to separate the policy and immediately notify your agent of any changes as they progress. An insurance contract financially ties you to your spouse, so their actions affect you and vice versa. Once you have your own separate auto policy, you can always get homeowners insurance when you are ready and your discounts will be updated.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
