“In Oklahoma Does a Dad Still Have to Pay Child Support For a Teen Who Became Pregnant, and Cover the Insurance Expenses on an Unborn Child?”

Question: Unreimbursed medical expenses are generally split evenly by the parents. In California this is a “mandatory add-on” item. Pre-natal care, not covered by insurance, would likely be such an unreimbursed medical expense to be split by parents. Additionally, just because the daughter got pregnant does not automatically extinguish the duty to pay child support. Child support will generally continue until the child is 18 and graduated from high school, or 19 in any case.
