 If his company provides insurance and mom doesn't have it, he may have the child on his insurance, but it doesn't get guarantee he will get custody.  She will be using his insurance rather than state paying for it.

half the time divorce decrees order the father;s to carry insurance even if they have little to no visitation.  at least in this state, it won't matter at all as far as custody goes.  He would get credit in his child support obligation for what he pays to cover the child on his insurance though.  I think it is great though that he can carry insurance.  mom should carry medicaid as secondary though as long she qualifies in case he loses insurance.

The courts here are going to order ds father to keep medical insurance on ds. This is the child support hearing only. He will have to take me to court for any visitation rights

He may be court ordered to provide insurance, but the courts shouldn't frown upon a mother being on state assistance to help raise their child...

Tax payers now are paying for the kid why should we continue to do it? If he has insurance at his job the courts will probably make him cover the baby. It has no bearing on custody. Medicaid is for poor people who have NO ACCESS to an employer sponsored health insurance plan. Dad may get a small credit on support for it too and he should because it is better than tax payers paying for it.

Ds bio dad has nothing as far as custody and is suppose to provide half insurance coverage but doesn't. Insurance was only put in papers after custody was finalized. I live in WA so I'm not sure about state.

Nah, the judge will probably be more like, "its about dam time you put the child on your insurance!" How old is kiddo, dad isn't going to be able to just waltz in and get primary custody when you have status quo on your side. Take the high road and offer him standard visitation, every other weekend and a dinner during the week. Judge will look at you with the "she's trying to work with an idiot" and him with "what an idiot".

If dad can provide insurance the state will make him in Cali.

Don't worry about a thing. The court will mandate (if his employer offers insurance) for the child to be put on his insurance.
