What kind of policy do I need for my car now that I run a small business?
I recently opened a small catering business in Wisconsin and I use my car on the job. Can I still use my personal policy? Or do I need a different type of insurance?

“Since you’re using a personal car for business purposes, you’ll likely need a commercial auto insurance policy. Personal car insurance policies typically don’t cover drivers who get into an accident while conducting business.
Commercial policies offer many of the same coverages as personal policies, but their limits are higher. You can get up to $1 million in coverage to protect your business and yourself.”

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

I let my friend borrow my car and he got into a minor accident. We both have car insurance. Whose insurance will cover the damages?
When a car is borrowed and the driver gets into an accident, whose insurance kicks in to cover damages? I'm kind of regretting loaning my car to my friend now.
