If your final hearing on your divorce is coming up soon, and you aren’t our client, be sure to ask your lawyer whether s/he’s filed the COBRA notice.
As of January 1, 2009, all divorcing parties must file a notice with the court that tells your ex that his/her insurance is going to get terminated, and that s/he may have options for continuing health insurance through COBRA.
The notice has to tell your ex things like who to call and the phone number and address.
Judges are not supposed to sign the Final Decree of Divorce without this Notice being filed with the Court.
Don’t forget to do this. You don’t want your divorce getting set aside because you didn’t.
