My son has recently diagnosed with lymphoma. My ex has nothing to do with him (his choice) but pays child support through csa. I am struggling to afford his treatment as it is and looking ahead there are significant out of pocket expenses. I know I will likely shoulder them all but is there any way I can make my ex help pay for his son’s treatment. He has already said no and that he pays his share already and doesn’t understand the out of pocket expenses associated with his care as well as the time I will have to take off to care for him. I’m struggling emotionally but I know I need to be strong for my son.
Special circumstances. A change in the overall child support assessment can be made in special circumstances, such as if the child has large and unusual medical expenses. The recipient needs to apply and Child Support will review the case. They’ll seek detailed input from both parties.
