I received a court summon from Hennepin county family justice court in Minnesota.
My wife and I moved to Minnesota last summer (Aug. 2012). We actually separated from May 2012, but I found a job in MN so that we still moved together. We had gone through a tough time for personal relationship, more than 85% of time from May. 2012 to May 2013, we have been separating. But, she still gets pregnant last August. I have been providing house for her to live and paying some of her credit card debit, but I didn't add her into my employment health insurance.
She then applied MN Medical Assistance and everything has been fine, the baby was born last month, May 20th. The birth of the baby was a life changing event for me, I stayed 5 days in hospital with them, thinking about everything that we have had before, relooked at the reasons that have been keeping us separated. I decided to rebuild our relationship.
I moved back to home, give good-night kiss and morning kiss to my wife and daughter everyday, I also asked my wife to call the county to cancel the Medical Assistance because I have already added them into my insurance through my employer starting from July 1st 2013.
But the county filed a complaint to court on behalf of my wife asking court to ordering monies for past and ongoing baby basic support, medical support and child care support.
There is a option for informally settlement, we definitely want to do this. However, we have no idea what to say and to do right now. We have been working so hard to make the family reunion, we were almost gone too far in marriage
but fortunately we backed to track at this special time. We just want to get rid of this legal issue, we are okay to reimburse the reasonable past expenses to county.
Anyone can give us some suggestion about what to say and do in informal settlement? Thanks very much!!!
