My motion deadline is 14 days from today. My ex husband filed a motion on me and that I pay for his attorney fees I send him a letter to his attorney which he is telling me I cant respond to his attorney an that that I am raising attorneys fees. I told them I would make paymnets to them and neither of them disagreed or agreed. They cashed both my checks that I sent and not this is the first I have heard of it. He then spends money on his attorney to take the child support that he owes me and is always behind on it. I then sent him medical bills and he is refusing to pay for it. The motion is to take the child support that he owes and not pay the medical bills
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I guess what I want to know is in the state of North Dakota do I have to pay the medical bills up front before he has to pay...can I submit bills to him without paying? Is there a law that states that I cant contact his attorney?

Has the divorce been finalized? Do you have a Marriage Settlement Agreement?

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The divorce is done and has been done since 2001
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
like a divorce decree
Lawyer: MIAMILAW1127, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Does it say in the divorce decree/marriage settlement agreement that both parties are to split medical costs 50/50?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
what do they classify as medical bills
Lawyer: MIAMILAW1127, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Any bill related to medical treatment.

Unfortunately, you may need to pay those bills and then seek reimbursement.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
are chiropractic bills considered medical bills
Lawyer: MIAMILAW1127, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Yes if the treatment was deemed medically necessary.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
does it have to be okayed by a doctor or can she just go to have an adjustment because she was in extreme pain
Lawyer: MIAMILAW1127, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

It would need to be deemed medically necessary by a doctor.

Ask Your Own Legal Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
is there a law against talking to his lawyer if we have dealt with things in the past
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
what if the decree states medical bills and doesn't specify....so she cant go to a chiropractor when it is a covered service unless she spends another medical bill to find out if it is medically necessary
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
are you still with me
Lawyer: MIAMILAW1127, Lawyer replied 1 year ago

Yes I am.

No. Typically, when someone is represented you need to speak only to their attorney.

The chiropractor can be argued to not be medically necessary without being ordered by a doctor.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
