Yes, unfortunately you do. Unless the divorce decree says there is a timeline for it to be paid. She can even pay it and ask for reimbursement later on.

Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 1 year ago.

One thing you can do is contact the provider to see if they will agree to a lower amount. I do this frequently and they will often reduce by a certain percentage.

Expert:  Asad Rahman replied 1 year ago.

I'm sorry I don't have better news. One more suggestion is that if you were to seek a modification to the divorce decree, you could ask for a fixed process for when medical bills are sent to you. If you do not need further assistance, please accept and if you can rate the answer.
