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… Read More

Can your spouse cancel health insurance on you and his step children before the divorce is finalized?
I don't know about the legal ramifications but as a general rule, if an employee goes to his HR dept and asks to have his spouse and dependents removed from his health insurance policy they will do so without question. I don't think the employer has any obligation to require the employee prove they have the right to do so. Read More

Can an employer force spouses off of the health insurance plan if they have a health insurance plan available to them through their job?
To my knowledge- No they cannot. It almost comes down to discrimination. If they offer insurance to one spouse then your employer shouldn't be able to turn to another person and say "sorry.. your spouse has health insurance options at her job.. denied!" You will be the one paying the premium to carry your spouse! I have honestly never heard of this happening. You should contact your corporate HR though. Hope this is helpful:) Evan Read More

In the event of a divorce, said debts would be… Read More
