I tried to find information on this before posting, but I can't find what I'm looking for. Can anyone please help me?
My daughter is 9.5 months old. I have never been in a relationship with her father - nor was he present in my life while I was expecting her.... so he is not listed on the birth certificate. We have been through court and had our DNA tests - he is most definitely her father - so he is paying child support and comes to some visitations.
My question is: Can I enroll her with TRICARE? She doesn't have his last name nor is his name on her birth certificate - but a court has legally determined that she is his biological child. I do not know him well enough (or trust him enough) to give him her social security card and/or birth certificate... not to mention that he has no interest in following through with my request to list her under his insurance..... So anyways: is this something I can do on my own? If so - where do I start? Thank you in advance!.. also it's not too late to add her to tricare is it since it's been 9.5 months since her birth and 7 months since we had court...?
