Is the child supposed to be insured still?
Or is this to address past payments?
When I spoke to the local attorney he said that the past unpaid matching health care costs should be addressed at the same time.
We covered the child under our insurance when she dropped him.
$220.00 a month, plus about $2,000. in matching health care costs.
Thank you for the clarification. The legal mechanism for addressing these issues is a Motion for Contempt. There is an Order of the Court, saying that the insurance was supposed to be maintained and medical costs shared. That has not been followed, so you would file a Motion for Contempt in the same court that issued that order (or if neither party lives there, you can enforce it in Polk County) alleging that the other parent has willfully refused to obey the court's order.
The judge can issue an order forcing the other parent to make
payments under threat of fine or even jail.
