Insurance fraud pinocchio

Dishonesty to your insurer can result in not being able to get alternative insurance from another insurance company

A case study on Insurance Fraud:

We dealt with short-term insurance fraud in our last blog and today will look at a recent case study to illustrate the issues previously discussed by ourselves and the consequences of fraudulent insurance claims.

The Law of Insurance:

insurance fraud

It is probably true to say that most of us have a love-hate relationship with insurance companies.

We pay premiums to them to keep us covered for a loss/theft, but feel that most times the insurance companies try to avoid liability or use technical reasons to avoid the claim.

Another aspect is Insurance Fraud:

We thought we would start the new week with this completely different topic.

Insurance fraud; what is it?

Simply put; it is when an insured person claims from his/her insurance company for something that the insurer is not liable for; in terms of the insurance policy.

Can my child become a foreign national without my consent?

A couple of times a year we get an inquiry along these lines and we had one during this last week; so let’s try to answer the client’s question for you.

Below is the actual question:

 “I am a recently divorced mother and I want to permanently relocate to Australia with my minor child as I have obtained a wonderful work opportunity in Sydney; which will benefit both myself in the long term and my child eventually.

However, my ex, the father of my child, refuses to give his consent, despite the fact that the child resides permanently with me in terms of our divorce order.

The question is do I need his consent in writing or otherwise to take my son with me to Australia?”
