I was ordered to maintain health insurance coverage on my child, but I am unsure how long I must provide this coverage.
Is there a default or mandatory limit on medical insurance coverage of a minor?
I am unable to give you legal advice on divorce. I can give general divorce help for men, though, my knowledge is based on Ohio divorce laws where I am licensed to practice.
When a parent has an obligation to maintain medical insurance coverage for a child, the general rule is that the parent must maintain the coverage until the child is emancipated, usually when the child turns 18, though this age varies by state.
The obligation could, however, last longer if the parties agreed or specified otherwise in the dissolution paperwork.
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.
