    You will be responsible for 65% of the deductible pursuant to your PICS. If there is a dispute they should send it through child support or a motion. I would pay the $3250 directly to the provider or insurance company.

  • Can a Karon waiver be reversed?

    My ex-wife and I filed an uncontested divorce decree and we signed a Karon waiver. Now she is claiming I "misrepresented" myself and wants to get spousal maintenance. Can a Karon Waiver be reversed?

    Patrick’s Answer

    It is possible, unless she can show fraud. If she can show that in some way you were fraudulent regarding the consideration for the waiver or the extent of the assets that would be the only circumstance where she would prevail. It depends on what "misrepresented" means.

    • Selected as best answer

    She does not have a right to half of the additional profits if it is not contained in the four corners of the divorce decree. Prior emails are meaningless. Unless there is fraud, the decree controls.
