Depending on the name entered in lawsuit, is the specific individual the court will recognize. If a husband and wife have an action with their individual names as persons directly involved and included jointly and severely, the judgment will be exact in that instance. If a wife sues and wins, the judgment names her if her claim wins. If the husband attempts to use his position as husband to be included and the court finds he was not directly involved, the court will indicate the wife is granted judgment and he will be left out. Also, the attorney is advised by the court who wins and is to make the settlement to the court's discretion or the husband may say, "Make the check to me" but the attorney must get permission from the wife. Payment must be documented and a copy of the check is included for billing purposes. Legal billing is articulate. Ask the attorney if settlement is questioned
