Are you putting off your divorce because you don’t know which way Congress is going to go on health care? Some couples are, according to divorce attorneys and financial planners.
Some spouses are entering into post-nuptial agreements while continuing to live together. Others are delaying filing their papers with the court until there is clarity from Washington, D.C.
The Affordable Care Act prohibited insurers from charging more for people with pre-existing conditions. Some of the various bills under consideration by Congress would end those restrictions. Divorcing spouses who were in therapy or taking medication for depression might not be able to obtain health insurance.
