We have quite a situation on our hands and just cant afford an atty.
To summarize: Biomom went thru AG last March to get child support from my husband. Child was 8 and we did not know he existed. We have visitation and our relationship with the child is growing slowly.
Meanwhile biomom was involved in a very complex/messy/abusive relationship with the father of her other 2 sons. In the end CPS stepped in and she "voluntarily" placed the kids with her mother, who then tried to take her to court to keep the kids. That side of the family is just a mess.
Thru all this the oldest child, my husbands, has developed lots of anger and other problems. Without speaking to my husband Biomom put him in a mental hospital and got him on medication. He was there for about a week. We found out after the fact. Had we been consulted we would not have been in favor of institutionalizing him or putting him on medication without a lot more careful thought. He basically had an outburst they couldnt handle, and Im sure it was pretty ugly, and she gave up. She was weeks away from giving birth after a very difficult pregnancy.
She now has told us we owe $1000 in medical bills related to his hospitalization. Health insurance premiums are included in our monthly support but she has not maintained coverage.
We just dont have the money. I am not insured and am due in August - we are paying for this birth out of pocket.
Does anyone have anything to advise us?
