Options for insurance after your divorce

Question:  My husband and I are planning to divorce.  He carries the medical insurance through his employer for us both.  Can I stay on his insurnace? Do I carry COBRA? What are my legal rights?

Answer: You definitely need to talk to a divorce lawyer to protect your rights on this.  Depending on the settlement, sometimes it can be one of the terms of settlement, ensuring spousal coverage after the divorce for a determined period of time.  Again thought there are so many conditions and issues with this please discuss this with your divorce attorney. If there’s a diverse interest, you should have your own attorney separate from your husbands.
