To have records produced through a subpoena, it is correct that you would check the box that you want person/entity being subpoena’d to “produce and permit inspection…” specific records. At the bottom of the subpoena there is a box where you can fill in with your address and contact information so that the records are produced to you.
With DSS records, you will need a court order to obtain them since they contain sensitive information related to a minor child.
You can subpoena mental health records in the same way however, for confidentiality reasons, the mental health professional may need the written authorization of both spouses before releasing the records, or a court order.
