Looking to get her med records to prove some things and judge just told me to make sure its done properly. I didnt know if i serve them with it or not and how to actually fill it out and where the records need to be sent to. Thanks in advance.
to issue a subpoena to a doctor, you need court permission. to issue one to a hospital or a pharmacy, you better comply with hippa and with the statutes.
you are in over your head. this is not a do it yourself project. medical subpoenas have strict rules. violate them and you are liable for fees and damages.
why not hire a lawyer to do this correctly for you?
Gary's 110% correct, you have to get leave of court first to do that under statute. So it's not like you're asking for bank records where leave of court isn't required. I've done it once, and it's a bear to have granted. Witout a specific court order, your subpoena will be ignored. Talk to a family law attorney in the county the case is pending in for specific guidance.
I agree with the others - this is complicated, and every step will need to be precisely correct, according to the applicable rules. Get the help of an attorney.
