I am in Wisconsin.
I have joint custody of my children, my ex has physical placement. My ex and I discussed about my oldest daughter getting braces, and when he decided that he was in a situation to pay for them and I told him I couldn't because we are also going thru custody battle and I can't afford braces and a lawyer at this time, he went ahead and had braces put on. He told me that he would put braces on her teeth with or without my help and then he would ask for my half in court. My ex did procede with the braces, not even letting me know of appts, plus he nor the step-mom took my daughter to the ortho, it was her grandma. Wondering if I will have to pay for half of the braces....this was not an emergency thing.
Also, could my ex's wife have any reprocussions on her signing as my children's mother on medical forms, and emergency cards for school. She has put she is their mother and never even put my name on the forms??????????????? Also, my daughter is 11 and was followed by a car a week ago, and the father nor step-mother ever reported this. I took her to the police and had the report done. Now, my ex and the step-mom have her convinced that this is no big deal. Am I just a freaked out mom?
Thanks for any input you have!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
