I often get asked what a client will have to pay towards extraordinary medical expenses, or expenses not typically covered by an existing child support obligation.

Effective October 1, 2019, Maryland’s law on “extraordinary medical expenses” changed. The law (and these updates) is found in Maryland Annotated Code, Family Law Article §§12-201 and 12-204.

“Extraordinary medical expenses” are part of Maryland’s child support law. They can be incorporated into the child support guidelines and, therefore, be contributed to via child support. Or, these can be paid outside of child support, in proportion to incomes, either directly to the provider or via reimbursement to the parent advancing the total cost.

Either way, this typically resulted in the child support recipient paying the first $100, with anything above that contributed to by both parents.

“Extraordinary medical expenses” include uninsured, reasonable, and necessary costs for orthodontia, dental treatment, (now) vision care, asthma treatment, physical therapy, treatment for any chronic health problem, and professional counseling or psychiatric therapy for diagnosed mental disorders.

Previously, “extraordinary medical expenses” were defined as “uninsured expenses over $100 for a single illness or condition.

Now, “extraordinary medical expenses” are defined as “uninsured costs for medical treatment in excess of $250 in any calendar year” and add vision care. These changes apply to expenses incurred on or after October 1, 2019.

Proposed bill would alter Maryland’s divorce grounds | WTOP

Hot off the press. This is big news. For those who live together but who are unable to come to an agreement and draft an MSA (Marital Settlement Agreement), new proposed legislation in Maryland would allow a party to still file for divorce.

Big news in Maryland: As of yesterday, October 1, 2018, parties can divorce with NO WAITING PERIOD, even if they have minor children, so long as they have a fully-executed separation agreement. This is fantastic news, as it obviates the need to pay for a second residence and wait the requisite one year to divorce (absent specific circumstances).
