Even though the order says he is to pay for necessary medical expenses? We have asked her to send us a letter from the doctor saying it is necessary, but the doctor will not write a letter saying so.
Also, I have asked this question before, but I would like a second opinion. What about contacts. The decree says "necessary eye care"...we have been paying for glasses for years. Now one of them wants contacts also. Do we have to pay for both?
Ok, yes we do believe she is going over board. These kids have had so many MRI's, it is unbelievable. ALL the test come out with nothing wrong.
Ok, so if we are paying for the glasses and have always provided them, can we be held in contemp for not paying for the contacts?
As far as the Dermatology..he has been on pills, and medicated face face wash for 2 years. We did pay for it the first year, then we stopped, because we felt it was ridiculous...it wasn't cheap. He also has told us he doesn't use it, which proves he doesn't have an acne problem. But there is no way my husband will subject his son to any court hearings. Now she is threatening court action.
So can we be held in contemt if the court order doesn't specifically state contacts? It states eye care, which we have provided.
