    It seems as though what you are quoting from is the provision for the uninsured healthcare expenses, not covered by insurance. This is actually different from who will actually pay for health insurance. There should be a provision elsewhere as to who pays the insurance costs. Do either one of you have access to health insurance through your employment? Usually the default is whoever can pay it shall cover, but often, there is a specific provision in the order for it. If he was ordered to pay...

    I agree with the above answer, but your question is a bit vague. If there is an issue of vagueness, sometimes a citizen can assert their rights for a law being unconstitutionally vague. Perhaps if we knew the specific issue in dispute, we could comment on another venue that you might have to pursue your cause.

    You can file for a divorce, but you must note that you are pregnant in the petition. There is a mandatory 60 day waiting period and usually, the divorce takes longer, absent a prenuptial agreement, or a resolution as to all issues. If you want the dissolution (divorce) to move along, you can still file, but there will be issues pertaining to the pregnancy that you will have to resolve, but there is no harm in getting the ball rolling, if that is your goal. However, as a practical matter, you...

    How did she take your daughter away? If you have full custody, she does not have the right/authority to do that. Is there a guardianship and/or CHINs pending? Yes, you definitely should retain a child custody lawyer to assert your parental rights. Best wishes to you.

    It would actually depend on the court order. And if you were able to retrieve it from her, you wouldn't actually "sue" her. It would be in whatever paternity action/CHINS/custody case was pending. You would request the court to redirect the payments to you (unless she was already supposed to pay you directly, but doesn't seem that likely). You would probably ask the court to determine arrearage and reduce it to a judgment and then you can request interest on that judgment (See IC 31-16-12-2)....

    We never recommend getting a divorce without legal counsel. However, based on your synopsis, you don't have children and it doesn't seem as though you have property to allocate. You will have to obtain his address to make sure that he is properly served. You can go to the self service website and read the instructions for filing for a divorce, and you can also use the forms that they have on the website.

    I am sorry to hear this. This is incredibly sad for both of you. You can get a divorce. The state cannot force you to stay married to anyone. However, under the circumstances, you may be required to pay spousal maintenance. Here is the applicable statute concerning spousal maintenance: C 31-15-7-2 Findings concerning maintenance Sec. 2. A court may make the following findings concerning maintenance: (1) If the court finds a spouse to be physically or mentally...

    You would have to show his conduct was in question when this happened, and not just a result of the economy or a "reasonable" business decision. Why did he lose it all? People are allowed to make mistakes. It becomes an issue when its bad conduct (e.g. Drugs, gambling, etc.). Best wishes to you.

    Do you intend to stay in Indiana after the divorce? Often, marriages in other countries are recognized, but if you want to be legally divorced in the United States, you need to get divorced here. That means, if you want to stay here, or ever intend to get remarried in the United States, you should get divorced in the United States. The cost will depend on if you hire a lawyer, how contested your divorce is (contests about property and children, etc.). In that regard, we cannot provide you...
