Trion, GA asked in Family Law, Child Custody and Insurance Defense for Georgia

Q: Is a copy of child's insurance card considered a record in GA?

My ex and I have joint legal custody with me being primary tie breaker and him having visitation every other weekend.

I obtain and maintain insurance on the children by court order with him having to pay 65% of expenses not covered by insurance.

Is a copy of a child's insurance card considered a record required to be given to the non-custodial parent in GA?

This is a paragraph in our final order: "The parties, as parents, shall each be entitled to immediate access one from the

other or from third parties or any records or information pertaining to the minor children including, but not limited to, medical, dental, school and/or other records."

I am hesitant to provide a copy because he has bragged about him and his family using others identity in the past including mine to obtain a cable account when I was 17 that was very stressful to deal with and I do not want to catch myself in an insurance fraud claim/court case.

A: Yes. It sounds like your order would require this, as is typical of most parenting plans.
