My spouse removed me from her health insurance during open enrollment at work even though we have not yet filed for divorce.
Knowing that we would file divorce soon, did my spouse commit an unlawful act by removing me from her health insurance coverage?
I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Indiana divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.
Since no divorce is pending before the court, the court does not have jurisdiction over you or your marriage.
Therefore, there is no action the court could take for your spouse’s cancellation of your health insurance.
Once a divorce is pending before the court, you could request an order as to health insurance. Once an order is in place regarding the payment of health insurance premiums and the maintenance of health insurance policies, then there would be action available to the court for your spouse’s cancellation of your coverage.
Remember, I am unable to provide you with anything more than divorce tips for men, so please consult with a divorce lawyer in your jurisdiction.
