Child Support Liens

Insurer says child support lien is superior to medical provider liens, but not to attorney lien. However, 56 O.S. § 237B (F)(1) doesn't support this position. Either way, the client isn't going to get anything, but we want to make sure the doctors get paid.

Answer: The statute seems clear that the doctors and lawyers get paid: “F. The child support lien shall be inferior to any lien or claim for: 1. Services and expenses documented and related to the claim, such as attorney fees or health care expenses;”
