Obamacare / PPACA & Indiana Divorce - Indiana Divorce Law 2013 and 2014


Under the PPACA, every individual, regardless of marital status, will be required to obtain individual health care coverage.  This represents a drastic change from the nation’s previous health care practices and requirements. While the enactment of the PPACA will inevitably result in major changes in the health insurance industry, the PPACA may also have a profound effect on the institution of marriage in the United States.  Indeed, the incentive to marry solely to obtain health care coverage will seemingly be eliminated. Conversely, particular provisions of the PPACA, especially those allowing low-income individuals to obtain tax reductions in order to pay for health insurance, may actually incentivize certain individuals to abstain from marriage or seek divorce. Furthermore, certain provisions of the PPACA may also have an effect on child support and spousal maintenance payments.  

To keep this topic updated I created a page in this blog that I will update as the PPACA and Indiana Divorce Law develops.  Go here for the  “Obamacare” / PPACA & Indiana Divorce Law page.
