My child support order included a national medical support order for "all health coverages". The ncp's employer provides medical, dental, and vision through three different benefit companies. Currently my daughter is receiving medical coverage through "All Kids", and I pay a premium directly to the "All Kids" program. The ncp has gross income in excess of 90k, and I was told that due to the NMSN, my daughter is no longer eligible for "All Kids".
NCP employer enrolled my daughter in medical coverage, not dental or vision. In addition the medical is a PPO with a 2k annual deductible. Just hoping to not have to pay an attorney to modify the order.
My income is approx 22k yr.
i assume you are getting child support. it should be roughly 14k a year.
if the order says all coverage and if the ncp did not enroll in all coverages, then you could do a petition for rule to show cause to ask that the ncp be held in contempt until he or she complies.
there should also be a provision in your court papers for the uninsured medical dental etc expenses to be divided somehow between the two parents.
maybe it is worthwhile to visit a lawyer with all your papers to formulate a plan.
I agree with the other answer. Please get help from an attorney to modify your order. You can get low cost or possisbly free attorneys based on your income. Or you can get help from the State's Attorney. Use an attorney to get it done right.
Talk to a few attorneys because there are ways that the Noncustodial parent could be ordered to pay for your attorney's fees. You could also speak to some of the legal clinics to get you some help.
