Help! BM Seeking reimbursement for Outrageous medical bills
DH has two children. SD12 and SD15. Per the divorce agreement DH gets to make major schooling Decisions and BM gets to make major medical/dental Decisions.
Here is the problem. BM Insists on using a out of network dentist for the kids which is VERY expensive. Then add BOTH kids are total pigs and never brush their teeth so every few months they require dental work. The last bill BM sent DH was over $500 for one office visit!
DH has told BM it makes no sense to use a out of network dentist when the kids have good dental insurance and could use a in network provider. BM refuses to change dentists giving the reason the kids are "Comfortable" there and they have always gone there. Total BS BUT for some reason BM is refusing.
So last winter DH sent BM a email stating going forward BM needs to find a in network dentist or he's not paying his share. BM never responded and last month sent DH a dental bill for over $500 from the same dentist. DH never paid it and now BM is flipping a nut emailing DH saying he's in Violation of the court agreement for not paying.
DH plans on not responding. Should he? If BM drags him back to court for being in "Violation" for not paying what is the best way to Prepare for this? Yes BM Legally gets to pick the dentist. BUT I can't Imagine when the judge sees the huge non-covered dental bills he would side with BM and allow her to Continue to use this dentist and expect DH to split the bills 50/50.
