I had a relationship with a man (who was going through a divorce) over 2 months ago. We ended things because he was getting back with his wife about 2 weeks before their divorce was final. This was the beginning of December. On February 14th, I started receiving threatening and harrassing online messages from his wife. They are going through a divorce again. I am also pregnant with my current boyfriend’s child, but she has told me she is going to subpoena my medical records so that she can determine who is the father. I have not had any form of intimate relations with the married man since November, and I am only 7 weeks along, so there is no way that the baby is scientifically his. Is this legal?
Paternity is determined through a DNA test. Your medical records are not used to determine paternity. An experienced family law attorney will not subpoena your medical records. Once the child is born, she could request the Court to order you to present the child for a paternity test. The intent of the test would be to prove adultery.
I agree with Mr. Middleton. It's unlikely that they would subpoena your medical records. I think the hospital's legal team would shut that down if a lawyer were to try.
