Long story short: I'm pregnant with an enlisted member's child. We did not work out, we have incredibly different life views/goals.
I'm on the east coast and my family is back west. I have no support system here.
I will be moving home prior to the birth of the child.
I'm currently looking at my health insurance options- I can keep paying for my insurance through cobra but to add the child my monthly cost jumps from 590 to 1125 a month.
Since I'll be out on maternity for a few months and don't plan to start working again until Jan/Feb my question is:
***Can/should I petition to have the child put on tricare or will that open a can of custody worms?
He has said in the past that he wanted full custody, then that he wanted to co-parent and sue me to stay in this state, then finally that he wanted to sign away all rights.
Any help would be great,
Thank you in advance!
