Q: How do I file for medical expenses?
My son was born in April 2018.
We recently finished custody court.
I filed for child support in October 2018, in Georgia. They lost the DNA test, I had to take him back again, prolonging the process.....and they are just now finalizing it, IN JULY, I haven’t received any payments yet. The parenting plan was finalized in court last week. I was not receiving any child support and I have $3,000 in medical bills from the deilivery. How do I file for past due expidentures? The judge told me there are laws to help but I don’t know how to proceed. Is this true? Any advice would be appreciated. I did not use any attorney in custody court. I paid for a consultation prior to going and followed the information I was given. Thanks
A: You should be working with an attorney on this so that it is handled correctly and promptly. You should consult with an attorney who can help you going forward. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
A: You are going to continue to be at a disadvantage proceeding without counsel. The judge is not going to be able to advise you on how to proceed with your case and which laws apply in your action. If the expenses are from the birth of your child, they are typically reimbursable, however, you need to be well versed on how to present and request that reimbursement.
