Re: Medical Bills Sent to Custodial Parent's Address with Non-Custodial Parent's Name
pay what is billed and sue the other parent for anything beyond what he would have had to pay if the other parent had acted such that it would have been filed with the insurance in a timely manner.
as far as the doctor is concerned, each parent is 100% liable for the charges. They are not going to attempt to enforce a child support order.
Is there some reason the doctor's office didn't file with the insurance company themselves? That is the typical arrangement.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
