Just thinking out loud here,lol!
my son is in the army. He will exit the army in dec and move back home with me til he gets his feet on the ground. Now I am realistic, it's going to take a while. Son will be going to college full time and working and also doing national guard.
I believe I can add son back on to my ins since he is under 25 and will be a full time college student. I prefer son go to college full time and focus in getting his degree, instead of worrying about working at a place that has benefits (I mean it would be nice,lol! ). Kids dad obviously stopped paying child support on son when he went into the army.
son plans on paying Internet/cable bill and half electric.
My question: if I can add son back on my medical/dental/vision ins, should dad pay half? I know some are going to say son should pay half.... But here is reality: had son not gone into army and went to college and stayed on my ins. Then dad would've still been paying half of sons ins amount.
I believe dad also wants son to focus on college full time and not so much about a job with benefits. But I have a feeling that dad will not want to pay half of sons ins.
edit: thank you for all the replies, sorry if I didn't respond to you directly.
im glad I asked because we don't always see things from the outside as we should!
Yes, it would be MY choice to add son to my ins, if possible. And not ex's obligation to help cover cost. Sure it would be nice, but not an obligation.
