In one of the recent ground 6 administrative reviews that we did, the custodial parent of the parent received the normal child support payments, however her child required braces.
The paying parent did not think that should have to pay for any part of this, however the ground 6 does include as an example room for a review where expensive dental work is required.
What Exactly Does A Ground 6 Administrative Review Cover?
It is for when it costs you extra to cover the child’s (or children’s) special needs
- The child has high medical costs or needs special care because of a disability
- The child has high costs related to dental work
