Can the Judge Require Life Insurance?

What is SPECIAL RELIEF?
It is relief that the court may grant a party directing his/her spouse to provide insurance for the benefit of his/her spouse or his/her children.

When is special Relief available?
In any matrimonial action.

What can Court order a party to do?
Purchase, maintain or assign a policy of insurance for health and hospital care and related services for either spouse or children;

Purchase, maintain or assign a policy of insurance on the life of either spouse and designate either spouse or children of the marriage as irrevocable beneficiary;

Are there any restrictions or limitations on the court’s ability to order Special Relief”?
The policy of insurance for health and hospital care and related services for either spouse or children cannot be for longer than party is obligated to pay maintenance, child support or a distributive award;

The life insurance may be during a period of time fixed by the Court but the beneficiaries’ interest must terminate upon the termination of the spouse’s obligation to pay maintenance, child support, a distributive award, or when the beneficiary remarries or predeceases the insured.
