If there is an active motion that suspended child support due to one being incarcerated wouldn't that also include not being able to cover any other expenses related to the child which would include medical, extracurricular activities, etc because since they were incarcerated they didn't have the ability to pay!
You need to take the motion and any related court orders to an experienced family law attorney for review and comprehensive advice, as we cannot comment without knowing what those documents say.

Yes, it should cover the incarcerated's obligation for ALL child related expenses since the parent has no ability to pay anything. But the Court may not know of the parent's incarceration and it is up to that parent to file a Motion to Modify and to Stay the Support. That should happen immediately because the Court cannot modify anything until a Motion is filed.
