COBRA & divorce

Q: I will be divorced at the end of December. My soon-to-be ex-wife is the primary. By law she has 60 days to notify her employer after the date of the divorce. If she waits the full 60 days & continues having the insurance deduction taken from her paycheck, will my coverage continue for those 2 months? And once the employer is notified of the divorce and I choose an outside policy (not COBRA), will I be charged an additional fee, retroactively, for the 2 months I was covered under her employer’s plan?
