I am going to testify at an upcoming family court hearing. I am a witness for the defendent, but am wondering if I will be questioned about my medical history which could make me look like a bad person. My records have not been subpoenaed. I am wondering if during cross examination if being asked about any medical treatment would be a violation of the HIPAA laws, especially since the records have not been subpoenaed. The defendent and I are in a relationship and I know my testimony could prove benefical for his case; however, I am sincerely worried about my medical history being brought up. This pertains to a child custody case.
