Are Medical Costs Part of Child Support?
The Law Office of André J. Ausseresses, APC knows that medical costs for minor children is a problem with many families. Our office has developed the best plan on how to present reimbursement issues, and what is reasonable and necessary.
Medical costs can be ordered as additional support for the minor children pursuant to Family Code §4061 and Family Code §4062 . Pursuant to the Family Code, both parties have an obligation to insure the minor child if insurance is offered through their employment at a reasonable rate, and it is assumed to be reasonable if it is a group plan. Furthermore, both parties have an obligation for all uninsured medical costs. Medical costs will include not only medical procedures but also dental, vision, and psychiatric care. Pursuant to the Family Code, all medical procedures must be reasonable and necessary before the other party is obligated.

Caring and professional! Wouldn't go anywhere else! I have had a such a GREAT experience working with this team, I had to! Everyone in the office is knowledgeable, professional, kind and quick to respond. It would truly be a mistake to go anywhere else for the services they provide!
They handled my case very well. They scoured through the details and supplied good communication so I always felt informed and clear about my position within the litigation. Each time we meet the staff was very informed and clear on the details of my case and goals for which I hired them.
