Dear goose:

Greetings. The answer depends on the situation of the parties; including, but not limited to, their incomes, ages, length of marriage, health condition, benefits offered through their employer, etc. If you are the supporting spouse (and make more money), then you should plan on maintaining the insurance through the date of divorce. Thank you.
