My daughter is now 14 and we have had joint custody with residential custody belonging to me since she was 4. I hold the health insurance, I pay all bills, etc. He takes her every other weekend or when it is convienent for him and barely pays child support (he was just in court last week). We do not have a good relationship and cannot communicate with each other because he is verbally abusive and blames me for every single problem my daughter has and says I'm "a joke for a mother".
My daughter recently had depression and was admitted into a residential clinic in order to get the help she needs. I have not told her biological father because I'm afraid that he will blame me and try to go to court for full custody, which would destroy my daughter if she had to go live with him.
He is constantly calling and texting me and her phone trying to see where she is, he also has called the school to see if shes attending. Do I legally have to tell him? Or can I claim HIPPA laws and that there are no court obligations for communication?
