A friend of mine has a father that lost his job, and with that, lost the insurance policy they had. Well my friend’s mother has a disease that requires a lot of expensive medication. My friend’s father and mother both have tried to get a insurance policy somewhere else, and have been denied or the monthly payment is too much for their income to handle.
My question is, is it okay for the two of them to get a divorce so that his mother can get on a government policy such as Medicare or something of that nature? They would both still live together, share the same house, share the finances; however, in the eyes of the law be divorced. Is this okay?
