What is a Divorce from Bed and Board?

  • The divorce from bed and board is a statutory creature that has really helped us today, in particular, with the cost of medical insurance coverage.
  • A divorce from bed and board divorces you in all respects except, under the law, you’re still considered married.
  • You can’t remarry and when you file your tax returns you have to file them as either joint or married, filing separate.
  • Other than that, it’s as close to being divorced as possible, and it achieves this goal of providing for medical insurance coverage for this otherwise uninsurable spouse.
