    medical bills

    What is the name of your state?MS

    Can you sue for payment of back medical bills? If so, how far back can I sue? The court order states that the non custodial parent is to pay half of all medical bills.

    My response:

    How old are the bills?

    Were the bills presented to the NCP within 30 days of the medical service?

    What is the total amount owed by the NCP?

    The bills have been over the past 5 years. The most recent major bill was last August. What is the NCP? The total amount is around 10,000. The bill for last summer was 5,800.

    My response:

    NCP = Non-Custodial Parent.

    Now, please answer ALL of my questions.

    medical bills

    MS

    Yes he has been notified of each within 30 days. Two of the bills are approximately 5 years old. The first two combined total about $4,000.The other bill is almost 1 year old. This bill totals $5,800. The bill from a year ago was a direct result of the NCD. The son had to have surgery on his hand after an altercation with the NCD. The NCD kicked my son in the groin because he called the NCD a wimp.

    I know what WMDs are. What's a NCDs?

    If the child was injured by the NCP, was CPS notified? The police?

    My response:

    First, the "reasons" for the bills are completely irrelevant. The only things that are relevant to your issue is whether the bills exist, and whether the NCP has paid his share.

    Initially, MS has a 3 year Statute of Limitations on written debts. Therefore, as far as the 5 year old bills are concerned, he won't have to pay you. You waited too long to prosecute your rights under your court orders. You should have gone back to court for an "Order to Show Cause" when he failed or refused to pay you, or pay the medical provided directly.

    If there are any bills that are less than 3 years old, you may want to finally think about exercising your rights under the current court orders. Until you do, nothing is going to get done, and you'll be the one stuck with the entire amounts of the bills.
