Webinar offers 'A Prescription to Cure Medical Support and Enforcement Aches and Pains'

The Michigan Judicial Institute (MJI) and Friend of the Court Bureau (FOCB) will present the webinar “A Prescription to Cure Medical Support and Enforcement Aches and Pains” on Thursday, July 27, from 9 to 10 a.m. via Zoom.  

This webinar is intended for friend of the court office staff and child support program professionals.

This session will provide the script needed to avoid the headaches when determining ordinary medical expenses (OME) and enforcement of OME and additional medical.  It will cover background information about why OME exists and what expenses are included. The discussion will also provide ideas about when it may be appropriate to change the presumed amount of OME and why that could be beneficial. 

Finally, the webinar talk about how this impacts the need for enforcement of medical support (and their debt types) and what thresholds exist.

Speaking at the webinar will be Paul Gehm, management analyst, Friend of the Court Bureau.
