Legal Question

Asked on: 5/11/13, 9:34 am

My ex and I have a court ordered agreement, where I am responsible for 30% of all unreimbursed medical bills that went into effect on March 9, 2012. However, it is stated in our contract that she is to give me these receipts within 7 days, and I am supposed to pay for these bills within 7 days as well. She is now taking me to court for contempt, because of bills she has stockpiled for the past 5 months, and NEVER gave to me, (as I am unable to pay for bills never given to me) some of which are from years before our court agreement ever went into affect (Before March 9, 2012) . My question is, Am I responsible to pay for these bills even though she never showed them to me within the allotted time period (7 days) as stated in our contract, and am I responsible for 30% of all "unreimbursed medical expenses" even though they were from years before this court agreement ever went into effect (March 9, 2012)? Her lawyers are also trying to take a week away from my already scheduled three weeks vacation with him in the summer, even though I live out of state and I see him only four times a month during the school year. Can they do this? Dont I have any rights to see my son longer especially during the summer, and especially since I live so far (out of state)? Lastly, because I live so far I was wondering is it possible for the mother to either meet me half way, pick up or drop him off one of the days during my "every other weekend" scheduled time with him as the 4-6 hr drives within a day and a half take a serious toll on me.
