I became divorced 3 years ago. As part of the divorce settlement,

Customer Question

I became divorced 3 years ago. As part of the divorce settlement, agreed upon in court, I was entitled to only 3 years of alimony, and medical insurance coverage for 3 years, from my ex husband's employer for which he did not have to pay since it was a family run business. After approximately a year of being coveredthe decision was made for the business (pre Obama care) That there would be no health insurance for the employees . Therefore as a result I would not be covered either. Up until April of last year when I became eligible for Medicaid I had no medical coverage. I learned this past week that my ex husband had not worked for 2 years at the family business and purposely did not tell me or or the court that he changed jobs. Which left me with no health insurance coverage . Is he liable for this?
