Question: Can I remove my husband from my medical insurance I have for our family at work, before are divorce is final?
Answer: A.R.S. § 25-315(A)(1)(b)(iii) states “Both parties are enjoined from removing or causing to be removed the other party or the children of the parties from any existing insurance coverage, including medical, hospital, dental, automobile and disability insurance." ("Enjoined" means you're not supposed to do it!) In other words, it is usually a very bad idea to remove a spouse or children from any type of insurance coverage while the divorce is still pending. If this is something that you feel you must do, you should seek written consent from the opposing party, as well as permission from the court. Be really, really careful with this entire issue. There are a number of different ways that divorcing parties get into significant trouble with the court, and this is a popular one!
