Medical Issues with Divorce

My children take medication regularly but my spouse refuses to send it with them during my periods of visitation. What should I do?

Bring the issue to your spouse's attention and find out what the problem is. Is it the cost of medication that causes the other parent to avoid giving it to you? Does the other parent think it is your responsibility to go out and get your own medicine? Once you know the underlying reason for the refusal, you are better able to come up with a solution.

Talk to your children's doctor to see if you can get a prescription to keep in your home. If you are not able to get a second prescription, consider scheduling a meeting with the doctor and the other parent so that the doctor may tell both of you how important it is that the children receive their medication.
