The child support orders states I carry the insurance premium for our two children. It is over $200 per month.
Both of my children have been in the hospital for the past 2 years. The uninsured medical expenses for my two children is very significant. My ex will not help.
Child Support Enforcement refuses to require my ex to pay half of the children’s uninsured medical expenses. I have asked numerous times, even in court one day during a modification of his child support (which was lowered). They would not bring it before the judge, told me to get a lawyer to go after it.
How can they refuse this? They way I read the law they are supposed to. They tell me I will have to file a lawsuit against him myself for the uninsured medical expenses. Is this true?
I have no money or I would have gotten a lawyer. Even so, if I am awarded an amount, can this amount be garnished from his paycheck like child support?
