In addition to child support issues that arise in family law cases, the ancillary issue of health care expenses will also arise. Typically, the child support obligor, who is paying child support for the child, will be required to provide health insurance for the child. It is customary for the parties to each pay 50 percent of any uninsured health-care expenses that the child may incur. Again, this obligation may vary from time to time for various reasons. Orders regarding health-care of a child contain very specific language regarding most all issues that may arise regarding the health-care related issues of a child.
Just as court orders relating to child custody, child visitation, and child support may be modified, so can an order regarding a child’s health-care expenses. Please see the Modifications page of our website to learn more.
