Husband in another state

Aug 8, 2012 by

Question: 

Hello, I filed divorce on Nov. 1, 2008 — I am in CA and my husband is in Wyoming. I have an attorney and we are trying to get a trial date, as my husband has fought the divorce as much as possible. Now, he found a loop hole in my health insurance and yesterday, 11/3/09 I just found out that he told the insurance company to cancel it and they did on 09/30/09. I was never notified and because the company canceled me, my husband now is not paying for it at all. My attorney is now saying that because it was the company, not my husband, I probably cannot get it reinstated. What should my attorney or I do, as I have no health insurance at all, no job, I am very worried, to say the least? Thank you.

State: 
California

Answer: 

Proceed with your divorce action in California and be sure to stipulate that your spouse also pays for your health insurance as part of any support agreements. Make sure you have a competent attorney, it sounds like you’re going to have a battle on your hands. – The Divorce.com Team
