Kyle, TX asked in Divorce for Texas

Q: I have just received a copy of my husbands answer to my petition of divorce. In It he has attached an addendum stating

He wants 6 months health insurance after divorce is final and 25.00 a month for 4 months. This is a very strange request to me. Is there a legal presidence for such a strange request? He is very manipulative. Just wondering if he could have researched something telling him to make a request like this.

A: It sounds strange to me too. He is not entitled to health insurance after you divorce, as most employers don't insure non-spouses. Sounds like he is just putting his "two cents in" because he's not happy about the divorce. You should consult with an attorney to see what your options are and how to move forward with your divorce.
