There is an agreement but ex is not responding to emails on paying his portion of unreimbursed medical expenses and extra- curricular activities.
How can I persue this leaglly pro se?
Do over the counter medications count as medical expenses too?
First, if your separation agreement has been incorporated in a court order (divorce decree or other order), then you can file a Petition for a Rule to Show Cause to enforce the order if he is willfully violating one of the terms of the agreement. You will need to review the order to ensure you file the show cause petition in the correct court. I encourage you to schedule a consultation with a local attorney who can give you more specific guidance on how to go about this process, even if you ultimately wish to proceed on your own.
Second, the language of your separation agreement may define what is considered an unreimbursed medical expense. So that is the first place to look. However, often the agreements do not specifically define these costs but use the language from the Virginia Code Section 20-108.2(D) which says that "medical or dental expenses shall include but not be limited to eyeglasses, prescription medication, prosthetics, . . . ." Only prescription medications are mentioned in the code, but the expenses are not necessarily limited to those. Again, I encourage you to schedule a consultation with a local family law attorney who can give you specific guidance about this issue in light of the facts of your case.
