Lawrenceville, GA asked in Family Law for Georgia

Q: My daughter graduated and is 18 now, do I need to continue paying 50% of medical bills that were accumulated in our

Divorce agreement when she was under 18? Paperwork doesn’t say I have to continue making payments on medical bills that occurred before 18. Can I stop making payments on medical bills now that is she 18?

A: Without seeing your order it’s difficult to say what you are still responsible for, if anything. However, if you were responsible for half of the medical bills until she turned 18, then it stands to reason that you would still need to pay your share for bills that came from before she turned 18. If you need further guidance, consult with an attorney who can review the facts of your case in detail. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558
