My question involves child support in the State of: New York
My fiances ex lost her job and medical coverage for her and her daughter. He does not have medical insurance. She lives in NY, we live out of state. She collects unemployment and does not have any medical coverage for child. Can the father request or demand she apply for state medical aid like medicaid for the child so she is protected. Right now she pays everything out f pocket somehow then sends us a bill for 1/2. The agreement said she wold continue to carry medical insurance unless he was able to get one that was better coverage for less money (she wrote that into the agreement). wouldn't it make sense for her to get state aid.. she would qualify.
