My husband and his ex split uninsured medical costs. She has not sent a bill in three years. At the end of last year, she and my husband resolved some disagreement over old bills and she told him she still had lots of bills to send him. So he waited to send her a check until the end of the year. From the time of their discussion, she sent no new bills. He has just filed to terminate child support as his son is now 18 and just graduated. The concern is that she will show up at the hearing with bills that can be up to 3 years old. She has had plenty of time to submit any bills. The CO only says that she carries insurance, they split uninsured costs 50/50, and that he has to reimburse her within a certain amount of time. Is there a statute that addresses how long the custodial parent has to send a bill? I think it’s really unreasonable to expect someone to pay a bill that is over 3 months if it has never been presented to the other parent. But I can’t find anything that addresses this.
Thank you so much for any advice.
