I was recently represented in court by a NC Child Support Enforcement attorney regarding a new support order. My ex wife did not show up and she was ordered to pay a monthly amount plus arrears. I was told in court that she would also be ordered to provide health insurance for my daughter. I just received the Order in the mail but am perplexed by the part that refers to medical insurance. The entire Order is very clear except #2 which reads: It is now therefore ordered, adjudged, and decreed that defendant has medical insurance available and was not ordered and shall not be ordered without further review of the court.
That is the only section of 9 sections that is written in all caps as to draw attention to it. I read this to mean that my ex has insurance but isn’t ordered to provide it for our daughter. Why would that be? I was told she would have to provide it. Everything I read on the CSE website says she should be ordered to provide it. I know that she has insurance available through her employer.
I contacted my case worker and left a message. She called back and left a message basically stating that she didn’t understand what my issue was.
Should I request a new hearing for insurance or…
In one week, I have a permananet custody hearing taking place. My ex wife has indicated that she will not be there to contest. So do I request a new child support hearing or simply request that the Judge, next week, put a provision in the permanent custody order stating that she must provide insurance?
I’m really confused as to why the child support order is stated the way it is stated.
