My ex is court ordered to carry insurance for our child. We then split uninsured 50/50. She sent me a very large bill expecting half from me. She dropped her coverage months ago and never informed me and now wants me paying the bills because she is getting past due notices. Am I still responsible for half when she isn't following the order by maintaining coverage? We would have had the option of going on a sliding fee with our child's provider had I known there was no insurance. However, they won't work with you on past bills, only future.

The answer would depend on the language of your decree. Did it require her to maintain health insurance at current levels or did it require her to simply maintain health insurance. If coverage was changed, more information would be needed regarding the changes in the insurance premium.
You should consult legal counsel
You should have an attorney review your divorce decree (or other governing court order as to unmarried parents) in order to provide you with a legal opinion. Your attorney will assist you, with seeking protective changes as need be and as appropriate to your full circumstances.
