Can a biological mom cover her 21 year old daughter on her insurance policy?
Question Details: The biological mom signed her rights away to the child at 17 due to a forceful unfair custody battle and the stepmom adopted the child. The child returned to her mom the day she turned 18; now she is 21. Her adoptive mom and biological dad refuse to put her on their health insurance. Can the biological mom/stepdad cover her under his family insurance plan coverage? Can biological parents give their income for the FAFSA as they will not give her their information to complete these forms either?
I am so sorry for your situation. First, understand that according to the law your biological mom is not related to you for legal purposes. That means you can not inherit from her estate (unless she puts you in a Will as the beneficiary) and tpshe can not place you on her insurance if rights were terminated. There is the option to try and nullify the adoption of your step mother. This, then, opens the door to those benefits from you biological mom. But it is a difficult process and not one to take lightly on an emotional and family level as well. As for the FAFSA, if you are not living with your parents and they refuse to give you the information then there is a box on the FAFSA to check about that. Then only your information will go on it. I am sure there are places and people to hep with that filing. Go and seek them out. Good luck.
