Superior Court of Connecticut.

Douglas Van Clief v. Nanc Van Clief


    Decided: June 28, 2010


The motion to reargue having been granted and memos having been presented on the issue raised, the court finds as follows:

The unpaid medical bills for all four children of the parties total $5,558.92 plus $450.00 for unreimbursed college expenses and $408.08 for contact lenses was agreed upon by the parties on May 13, 2010.

This court has addressed the impact of McHugh v. McHugh, 181 Conn. 482 (1980) as it applies to separation agreement.   In Garza v. Garza, 2000 WL 3304572 (Conn.Super.) Paragraph 7.3 of the Separation Agreement makes clear that “until each child reaches the age of nineteen (19) years all unreimbursed medical, dental, ophtalmological, psychological (including group therapy and orthodontia expenses for the children shall be paid one-half by each party.”   The amount owed for unreimbursed medical expense for the children who have not reached 19 years is $1,441.27.   The court has considered the elements that the Supreme Court set forth in McHugh, supra and these criteria are applicable to the present case.

Defendant owes plaintiff $1,441.61 and said sum shall be paid in twenty (20) days.
