Step-child: Government-issued birth certificate identifying your spouse as a parent AND a government issued marriage license showing you married your spouse.
Adopted child: Court document showing adoption placement, petition for adoption or final adoption certificate (must include date of birth).

Medical Child Support Order: Court documents ordering you to provide insurance for your biological child.
Adult disabled child: Government-issued birth certificate identifying you as a parent, AND medical certification of the child’s disability before age 26.
