June 2018 | No. 118,050 (Kan. App. 2018)

In re Marriage of White (Kansas 2018)

The requirement in the child support guidelines that medical support be addressed includes bills incurred, not only bills paid. The father appealed a district court order dividing medical expenses. He argued the court improperly considered bills presented by the mother for expenses incurred, but not paid. The court of appeals upheld the district court order. The appellate court found there was no prohibition in the guidelines against including expenses incurred and that there should be some latitude to consider the circumstances of a case and fashion reimbursement accordingly.
