Understood. lol
But Yes, DEERS is for dependent programs. Insurance and benefits. If he is trying to get it so he can get paid more, ask for the information for his command (if you don't already have it) and call them and let them know he hasn't paid in 3 months. Also, if you have a legal document stating the CS thing, get it enforced. If he has paid, have them make him pay it. Also, let them know he is military.

That's pathetic considering for a family of 4 we only pay $38 a month so the military parent only has to provide that much support for the kid? I don't think that any judge would agree to that.

Um, no. They do both. It doesn't cost the service member to provide insurance for their dependents, so there is no reason they can't do both.

As I said that's how the people we know did it. The mom chose between CS or insurance.

Sorry, I didn't read the replies, but I think he LEGALLY has to have his son on his deers. I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure they have to list all their kids (no matter where they are in the world or the status of the mother). It will give you the option for your son to use Tricare health benefits, but honestly unless you live far from base (so you can pick a non military doctor) or have other insurance, I wouldn't bother with the health care because it SUCKS! I could probably write a 5 page report (or longer) on how Tricare sucks so much.

He will receive Tricare and an ID card. Tricare is medical insurance and is great. I miss it. You need to contact the courts about his not paying CS.
