Understood! So you're just wondering what your exposure is here, correct?

Customer
Main concern is health insurance. Divorce Decree states he pays health insurance. What happens when he goes on Medicare?

So the short answer to your question here is that when it comes to the alimony, it would cut off if he reaches retirement age.

With respect to the insurance, the decree would have to say the same thing. If it doesn't say the same thing, he must still continue the insurance UNLESS he asks a court to make a change.

Customer
Thank you! I don't think there is a statement in the decree stating when/if health insurance ends from what I recall, but I'll check it again. Thanks so much!
