How Does The Custodial Parent Get The Noncustodial Parent To Pay His Share Of The Medical Bills Not Covered By Insurance?

OCSE does not collect the medical costs not covered by health insurance unless the custodial parent has the amount reduced to a judgment. To obtain a judgment, some counties allow the custodial parent to file a small claims action with the clerk of courts. Other counties require the custodial parent to obtain legal counsel to commence a hearing before the circuit court.
