I am responsible for carrying insurance on my sons b/c originally my ex was and he let the insurance lapse so I added them to my insurance to protect them. The cost of their medical insurance went from the original $100.00 a month to $600.00 per month. My ex was ordered to pay medical expenses or serve the 90 days he was sentenced and suspended for future compliance to divorce decree. I never took him back to court b/c if he goes to jail I will not receive support. I won a judgment against him for back child support, medical expenses and equity in our home. I released him of the equity portion of the judgment only and he is still behind. My son will graduate in June 2012 and I'm sure he will try to stop the granishment. Should I take him back to court to enforce the agreement?
You absolutely need to file something before July 1, 2012. If you file after that your child will already be emancipated and the court will not be able to impose the sanction of jail time. Most courts try not to actually but payors in jail, for the reason you don't want him in jail. However, with your ex, a work-release program may be beneficial to you and your son. The court has the authority to garnish his wages for the back support as well as the current.
