Hi all, I haven't been around a while, finalized divorce last year. But my ex and I don't agree on an S7 expense.

He pays every paycheck towards his medical and dental benefits. I have them as well but 100 percent paid by my employer. So at the end of May I have to reimburse him for my percentage of the S7 expense for his payroll deduction. His benefit is family coverage that covers him, my child and his partner, noting there are three of them on the plan.

He has calculated it by the difference between single and family amount. For example, if single was 20, and family was 50, then he thinks I pay my percentage of the difference of the 2. which is $30, times 26 pays = $780. My percentage is 70 so he is expecting me to pay him $546.

But the way that I read it, I only pay what attributes to the child and therefore should not be paying for all three members. Same numbers above. I took the family coverage of 50, times 26 pay = $1300 divided by 3 is $433 and my percentage of 70 percent is $303.

Does anyone know the correct way to calculate this?
