If We Live In Brooklyn And Are Getting A Divorce Do I Need To Keep My Spouse On Health Insurance?

Yes, for the time being. Under New York law, once a divorce action is filed, a series of “automatic orders” are issued by the court.

These basically tell both parties that they can’t sell off or destroy marital property or financial instruments, that retirement accounts can’t be emptied, and that spouses and children cannot be removed from health and dental insurance policies.

If you need help navigating your rights and responsibilities during a divorce, call the Brooklyn divorce lawyers at Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino at 718-725-9601 for a free consultation.
