My ex wife and I have a signed separation agreement from 2007 stating that support with be determined by NC Child Support Enforcement and that they will equally share medical expenses not covered by insurance. I began paying child support through Child Support Enforcement in 2008 which requires a certain dollar amount each month plus I am required to cover the children’s health insurance. My ex wife has been taking my children to several doctors appointments a month totaling almost $1000 in copays which she is demanding we split. Is this the case, because I was under the assumption that the child support took medical expenses into account and that the current support order would superceed any prior agreements for financial support as stated in our separation agreement.
I would like to also add that our separation agreement also states that each party is to keep the other informed as to the status of the health of the children and to consult with the other party as to the major decisions affecting them. I have only been informed of about 1/4 of their dr’s visits (which totaled 11 last month) and have not been included or consulted on any decisions including medications they have been taking without my knowledge or consent.
