My daughter’s father does not know anything about his dad’s side of the family because apparently there was some kind of terrible incident between his father and mother and they divorced. His mom got remarried and they literally don’t speak of this man or that side of the family. She will not even share what happened or why they never speak of him. The whole story is super flimsy and from what I’ve heard, his dad didn’t pay child support so they kept the kids from him…something that would never fly today.
I want to be able to fill in my daughter’s family medical history and I’d like to know if she has any cousins or any other family from her dad’s side. It’s just her dad and grandma and aunt right now on his side. Do I have any recourse? Can I ask the judge at our permanent custody hearing to require him to share this info with me?
