What is the name of your state? Wisconsin
I was just about to send a letter to my daughter's father requesting that he pay half of her orthodontist bill. I could have sworn that there was mention in our court papers that said we were to split bills 50/50 if they weren't covered by insurance.
I looked through the court paper and it does NOT say that. Perhaps someone told me this? Am I assuming too much, or is he legally responsible for half the bill?
Our joint custody agreement is pretty typical. In the past whatever co-pay or extra amount there was I just paid rather than fight about it. But this bill is a couple grand, and it is only "phase one" of her treatment.
