BEWARE of financial responsibility above and beyond that of child support. If the life your decree lasts 10 years, that's a long time to trust your ex to control your expenses.
For example, if your decree makes you responsible to provide medical insurance, or that you pay uninsured medical, you've got a problem. Should your attorney instruct you to pay (even a percentage of) uninsured medical, BEWARE!! The term "uninsured medical" is much more than an
interchangable term for deductable. It's a blank check!!
The uninsured medical provision can bring financial disaster if your ex decides to take advantage. It allows your her to go to any doctor she chooses and/or get treatment out of your coverage area regardless of insurance coverage or cost. Furthermore, if your ex refuses to pay her share of uninsured medical, they will will look to you for payment. And, they will use every available means to collect it.
Moreover, it's impossible to predict the future. You could lose your job. Your ex could move out of your coverage area. Your company could change insurance companies. If your attorney is careless, your uninsured medical could add up in a hurry.
Needless to say, your responsibility for medical insurance must be limited to what your employer offers, and only for as long as that coverage remains in force. Nothing more. If you run out of insurance, if you lose your job, if your ex moves out of the coverage area, your responsibility must end. It's not fair to hold you responsible for events that are beyond your control.
Furthermore, your decree's language should state "deductable," not simply "uninsured medical." There's a huge difference.
