Question:mens divorce attorney

My ex-wife has told me I owe half for braces for our child. She never discussed this with me and our divorce papers state any expenses not covered by "medical" are to be split 50/50.

My question is, are braces cosmetic or medical?

divorce lawyer Kirsten ReneauQuestion:

As with most parenting plans, we have joint decision making, but in the event we can't agree, my ex has the final say with my only recourse being mediation.

Well, despite that, my ex started our child on allergy shots without discussing treatment with me or involving me in any of the decision-making.

Of course, she now wants me to pay for half of the treatments and yes, this is in our parenting plan about splitting unpaid medical. Since she made this decision by herself, am I still obligated to pay half?

Baltimore Maryland divorce lawyerQuestion:

My divorce lawyer advised me to get doubles of my children's medications because there are times when my ex-wife does not send the proper amounts with the kids when they come to visit.

I pay these costs out-of-pocket because my insurance won't cover it. How can I get reimbursed for these expenses? Can I contact my children's insurance company or must my ex-wife do that since she's the policyholder?

I'm trying to do what's best for our children's health, but it is increasingly difficult to cover these costs out-of-pocket.

divorce lawyer Jordan RapoffQuestion:

I pay child support and even though my income has increased since the order was entered, so have my living expenses.

My ex-wife, who is working and earning less and less, wants to raise my child support because she says the court doesn't care about my expenses only that my income has increased.

Is this correct? Do I really owe her more child support every time I earn a raise while her income keeps dropping?

divorce lawyer Alex DurstQuestion:

My child support order requires me to cover medical expenses and costs related to my child's hockey team in addition to normal child support.

My ex-wife just sent me receipts looking for reimbursement for things like prom tickets, school testing fees, yearbook picture expenses, etc.

Since those extra expenses are not mentioned in my child support do I have to pay them? Isn't that what child support is supposed to cover?
