If One Of You Has A Health Problem, It Is A Problem For Both Of You
The court system is limited as to what it can do through the traditional form of divorce. Alternative dispute resolution allows more flexibility for extenuating circumstances in each family. Because these are decisions you are making with your spouse, you can work out how you will deal with your spouse’s health issues.
Sheldon E. Finman, P.A., helps couples find alternatives to regular divorce proceedings. As attorneys who are familiar with health insurance and divorce matters, we will work with you, your spouse and your spouse’s lawyer to come up with a reasonable solution that works for both of you while accommodating the needs of the person with health issues.
How Will Your Divorce Affect Your Health Care?
If you or your spouse has a continuing health issue, you will need to consider the cost of care and health insurance as you divide up your lives. You can leave your children on the health care policy of the primary policyholder. You cannot keep your spouse on the policy after a divorce in Florida. This may create a problem if your spouse is unable to get health care through employment or if it is not affordable.
It is important to remember that the state of Florida does not want one member of the couple to become indigent and rely on state programs to survive because of his or her health status. The court will take this into consideration when looking at your final divorce settlement.
