Can I Keep My Kids On My Health Insurance Plan After My Spouse Has Filed For Divorce In Brooklyn?

Yes, you should leave intact any health insurance of life insurance policies that cover your spouse or children for the time being, as automatic court orders are issued with your divorce papers that are intended to protect all parties – and especially any children – from going without health or dental insurance they had prior to the divorce beginning.

You are expected to continue to cover your children for the duration of the divorce, and your spouse, even if your spouse initiated the divorce.

How health insurance is covered for your children will be worked out in the divorce.

If you continue to provide coverage through your employee policy, for instance, any child support payments you make may be reduced.

If you and your spouse both work in jobs that can provide health insurance, then the issue becomes a financial consideration and things like policy cost and tax implications will be worked out in a way that makes the most sense for you.

An experienced Brooklyn divorce attorney can help you get the most favorable terms for custody, visitation, and child support.
