Will My Spouse Keep Me And The Kids On Their Health Insurance During Our Divorce In Queens?

Yes, when a divorce begins, your judge will issue a series of automatic orders that require both parties to maintain the status quo in terms of finance, assets, and health and life insurance.

In the long term, the court will likely order that your children remain on your spouse’s health insurance until they are independent, barring a significant change in circumstance, like job loss.

You may or may not have access to your spouse’s health insurance following the divorce, depending on factors like your health status and ability to get insurance on your own.

For the time being, you have nothing to worry about when it comes to having health insurance and access to your doctors and prescriptions.

Your kids are protected, in effect, in perpetuity.

In your divorce, you’ll likely have to give up some things that matter to you, but in Queens, you’ll have time and the resources to recover what counts.
