Health insurance cannot afford!


#1

Cannot afford health insurance for my child. She lives with Mom in Greensboro nc. I do not have health insurance and as you know a lot of people cannot adford it. My x wife does have health insurance through her job? Couldn’t she put my daughter on it?

Yes, it is possible that your ex-wife could add your child onto her medical insurance policy unless however, you are court ordered to provide health insurance for your child.

It was in our divorce decree I was to pay insurance. Do not have the income to do it. My job does not offer insurance. What can my x do to me. She is very unreasonable. Been married twice and kids moved to their Dads from previous marriage. If I could pay it I would. Her income is more than mine I have bought clothes and pay 400 child support. Which is more than I have to by income. I love my daughter!

You can be court ordered to obtain and maintain health insurance for a minor child if health insurance is available at a reasonable cost. A reasonable cost is defined as coverage at a cost to a parent that is not more than 5% of that parent’s gross income.

If you are court ordered to provide health insurance for your child but it is not available to you through your employer and obtaining a private insurance policy for the child would cost you more than 5% of your gross income, then you cannot be required to provide the health insurance. Your court order may address this issue. If it does not, you may need to file a motion to modify the child support order due to the fact that health insurance for the child is no longer available to you at a reasonable cost.

All my divorce papers say is the father is required to pay health insurance. Plus half of medical expenses. How do I petition the court to modify the support agreement. I have no access to health care that’s not astronomical in price. Way over 50 percent of income. Thank you

If you have a court order, you can modify the child support order when there is a substantial change in circumstances affecting the wellbeing of the child that has occurred since the date the order was originally entered. NC has a pre-printed form for motions to modify child support: Motion and Notice of Hearing for Modification of Child Support Order.

If x has moved to Greensboro NC and I live in Ga.
The divorce was in hoke county or Raeford NC where do I file this?

You need to file the motion in the same county in which the court order was filed.
