There aren’t any statutes that directly deal with who pays for transportation when the parties live in different states. Generally, a court will make that decision on a case-by-case basis. I would encourage your ex to pay for half of the transportation, but realistically, a judge may charge it all to you, since you chose to move. You may be able to get the travel expenses included in your child support order. You should check with an attorney in your area.
In terms of the medical expenses, if he is not complying with your court order, you can certainly pursue a contempt order. Additionally, you may want to keep in mind that he may also pursue similar action if your moving to another state has frustrated the visitation that was ordered. You should make sure that you are complying with the order until it has been modified by the court.
