Can I Stay On Spouse’s Health Insurance During Divorce?

Health insurance during the temporary phase which is between the time that that you or your spouse files for divorce, and the final stage, you can stay on your spouse's health insurance and most courts won't blink an eye at granting you an order being able to stay on that insurance policy so you don't have to go out and get your own.  Once you divorce all insurance companies will require that only the employee [if it's an employer-sponsored plan] remain on the insurance policy.  If you get a legal separation there are insurance companies that will allow you to remain on your spouse's policy but it's something that should be checked with each insurance company.
