Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
What is the reason that he keeps dropping the insurance?
Is he changing jobs often, or is he just not paying the bills to keep it in effect?
Has your wife filed any motions with the court regarding him violating the order?
Ok, if he is losing insurance and then reinstating it when he gets new employment, then if he is voluntarily quitting his jobs and moving around, then that could be grounds to file a motion for contempt of court for failing to comply by the judge's orders. The judge could take punitive action such as a verbal chastisement up to 6 month's jail time..
But it is more likely that he would give ex a verbal warning to keep the insurance in place and threaten him with contempt next time as well as order him to pay any out of pocket costs incurred by your wife for the children's medical care..
Ok, if he was involuntarily terminated, then unless it was for misconduct, that tends to mitigate this termination. But this wouldn't excuse the previous quits. So even though a judge might not ding him for this one, it would be a good idea to get this in front of the judge to get these violations on the record. That way, once the judge admonishes him for his actions, he is much less likely to give him a break if this happens again.
