Putting a hold on divorce to avoid losing health care

When a Minnesota couple no longer wants to stay together, they can opt to get a divorce. However, some couples are deciding to hold off on going through the divorce process due to the uncertainty of the future of health care in the United States. For example, some individuals are afraid they will not be able to get their own health care insurance when they can no longer stay on their spouse's plan.

Issues regarding the marital home during a divorce

What can be accomplished during a divorce

Although many Minnesota residents have some idea of what to expect when it comes to divorce, going through the actual process can be difficult and stressful.
