Can I subpoena welfare documents and Medicaid/medical records?

I want them to show proof that the parent was receiving assistance because of the child when when the child did not actually live there. And I want medical records to prove mental health problems.

Under the laws of all states in this country you are entitled with respect to a legal action to have documents that are reasonably calculated to lead to the discovery of admissible evidence to be subpoenaed.

As such IF welfare, Medicaid and medical records will assist what you need to prove your matter you can have such obtained via a subpoena. I suggest that you may want to consult with a family law attorney to assist you in your matter.
