Rochester Child Support Attorney Explains How You Should Handle Non-Reimbursed Medical Bills
Many people come to see me as an experienced Rochester Child Support Attorney, with questions about the handling of non-reimbursed medical expenses such as co-pays incurred for your child’s doctor visits or prescriptions. Those two expenses are generally the most frequently addressed. I tell them the law states that these expenses are to be divided on a pro-rata basis – as determined by the incomes of the mom and the dad. If Mom and Dad make the same amount, those expenses would be split 50/50. If one parent makes 60% and the other makes 40% of the couple’s combined income, those unreimbursed medical expenses are shared in that same ratio.
