Normally the parent providing medical, dental, and vision insurance for the dependent children before a family law case is initiated will be required to continue that coverage. If neither parent has such insurance, a determination will be made about which parent has the best coverage available at the least cost. In some circumstances, neither parent may be able to provide health insurance for the children and arrangements will have to be made to obtain coverage through a plan offered by the state.
It is important that you explain your family’s specific circumstances to an experienced family law attorney such as those at the Law Office of Frank Gaynor to explore fully and protect your legal rights. Please contact us to obtain advice pertinent to your particular situation.
