Greetings. Yes, if the order says that you pay uninsured expenses, then you owe for co-pays and prescriptions, but I would immediately write to her and tell her that you require receipts.
No, simply because the insurance rates increase does not mean that her obligation or your obligation changes. You would have to modify the current order to change it.
Now, if your spouse can help her out temporarily with finances, then he may want to think of that option as a way to go back to “normal.” But, the key is a one time “helping” payment with a letter saying that is what it is. Thank you.
