Must I stay in a job I hate because of my kids’ health insurance?

When parents divorce, the agreement often stipulates that one parent is responsible for obtaining and paying health insurance for the children. If you are the one who does this and your insurance is from a job you have always hated or have come to hate, you may wonder, "Am I stuck in this job until the kids turn 18 because the divorce decree requires me to pay for their health insurance?"

You and your significant other got married a year ago, and it's been great. You haven't had any real problems or major fights.
