My husband & I married since 07. Husband kicked me out 2 years ago. Living since then apart.
Not divorced or legally separated yet (in my case) due to health & financial difficulties. Hope to start the process as soon as possible. I am undergoing quite serious health care problems & treatments. Knowingly my husband dropped me from the insurance plan beginning Jan 2015 without notifying me. I tried to contact him, but he refuses to respond my calls or text messages. His work company (contractor for State department) won't give me any information either. They refuse to give me a letter stating, that I was dropped from the plan, so I can try to get health insurance through my company. I feel my hands are tight up. I am concerned about my health, & I don't know what my rights are. Please help.
The judge won't like it, so best to contact your divorce lawyer to get it resolved. Avvo has a great lawyer finder tool to locate an attorney. Good luck.
You can either hire an attorney to begin the divorce process and deal with the issue of health insurance in that case or you can file a petition in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court in the appropriate jurisdiction requesting both spousal support and health insurance.
In the event you do file for either divorce in Circuit Court (most sensical at this point) or just file for support and/or health insurance in Juvenile & Domestic Relations Court, you can also request the court to issue a temporary order for relief. After filing your complaint or petition with the court, you will have a long time to wait before trial. A court will grant temporary relief to maintain the status quo in the meantime and in lieu of trial. The purpose is maintain some kind of certainty for everyone.
You should really speak with an experienced counsel about the specifics of your case.
