    Our house flooded because of a burst pipe. My husband is the name on the house deed, and the house insurance is in his name only, although he bought the house after we were married.
    He lives in an apartment away from us, where he works, and I have been living in the house with the kids for 3 years.
    All the kids and my possessions were ruined in the flood; their musical instruments (so sad, a violin warped by the water) and all their beds and clothes and furniture, toys broken. Three ceilings fell down.
    My husband refuses to file a contents claim. At first, he was going to file a claim, but the insurers said any check would go to him, at his separate address. Then I said I wouldn’t value the violins for him. (One of these was given to me by my father when I was a child, and is worth thousands of dollars).
    So then my husband said he would refuse to claim at all for the contents.
    So the children and I have lost everything.
    What can I do?
