Not in Massachusetts. In MA it is up to the individual, not her ex-husband.

You can refinance without the spouse but you will need their consent to do so. If the spouse is on the title of the home, the answer is "no". If the spouse is on the existing mortgage the answer is "no". If the spouse is not on title you need to indicate on the loan application that you are married, and if you don't is fraud. At the time of closing she/he would have to be present. Inform you spouse of your actions.

Generally, your employer will allow you to remove your spouse only during an annual drop/add period. Legally, a spouse is not required to provide health insurance for the other spouse unless directed by court order. However, courts often have "standing orders" where in parties filing divorce are prevented from doing such things.

They may ask for proof that you are married but otherwise they shouldn't. Not that they won't try.

While there might be a state law somewhere that allows it, I would be surprised. A separation does not remove the duty of each spouse to support the other. If the employee has the insurance befre the separation, he will have to keep it until a divorce, remarriage after divorce, she obtains her own insurance or a court orders otherwise.

A person can certainly choose to drop a spouse from their coverage with one exception. If the employer is paying 100% for the employee and spouse then the employee can not opt out of coverage since it costs them nothing. You may be required to show that the spouse has alternate coverage. Check with your HR department or benefits coordinator.

No, pregnancy does not make one an adult. She will still require the permission of her parents or a court order. Even to drop out of school would require permission from the parents.

Unfortunately, even in Texas, if one of the two spouses wants a divorce they have a right to get that divorce and nothing can stop it. If one wants to drop the divorce then they will need to 'nonsuit it.' This means that the person who filed the original petition for divorce will need to file a 'motion to nonsuit.'

Usually divorce (to drop the other party) or marriage. Otherwise you may have to wait until open enrollment to drop. If you want to add yourself to your spouse or partner's coverage check first but you may be able to do that when you drop rather than have to do it during his or her open enrollment period. Again, check first before you do anything.

It is a "quit claim deed" that you have to obtain and you have to refinance to drop the other name. It is a "quit claim deed" that you have to obtain and you have to refinance to drop the other name.

It wouldn't be a good idea, because there are deductibles, co-pays, etc. not covered by Medicare.

I don't think it's possible. But if your married, and you want to divorce your wife/husband, you go to Maddie's Magic shop and buy the close card, and drop it in your loved one's house. :)

If one of you already had a temporary mail drop in Las Vegas Nevada for 6 weeks, then divorce is instantaneous.

I believe you are both responsible for any bills incurred (such as health care costs) until you are divorced, so in some cases it would behoove a spouse to keep coverage on the other spouse so that they don't end up responsible for a large bill in the case of an accident or serious illness. However, if there is a separation agreement with a clause about neither party being responsible for any debts incurred after the signing of the agreement, one may be able to drop their spouse from insurance without issue.

you drop money b/c both of the events require buying gifts

In the US, some qualifying reasons to drop health insurance would be because one of the people originally covered becomes eligible for Medicare, one of the people covered dies, or if the people covered were married but then get divorced (unless maintaining health insurance is manadated in the divorce decree).

check your state laws, maybe Ps. If you want the divorce null and void ask her to agree to drop it. If you both agree, should be no problems stopping the process.
