Yes, most states require a full or partial reimbursement of the medical costs in the order. Review your order if that is the case. Even if the child is on state benefits, the state can seek a reimbursement.
I'm not trying to be the bearer of bad news, but yes, they can seek your financial records especially if your argument for not complying with the JOD is that you are short on funds.
My JOD does not state that I am required to pay anything. It simply says "child support is set at zero".
And my JOD says that I'm required to put my home up for sale if I cannot refinance - given that, they can still subpoena financial records? It does not order me to refinance. She is not owed any money from the proceeds. It's only to get her name off the mortgage.
Does your JOD not talk about medical support or 50/50 split cost for medical care? If not, then you could challenge her attorney's assertion.
Yes, but requesting financial records is fairly customary in these cases and she may be intending to seek child support or some sort of spousal support.
