Can Divorced Parents Access a Child’s Records?
Florida law ensures that both parents have equal rights when it comes to their child’s records, even if they’re divorced. However, this may change if a court happens to take such a right away for whatever reason.
Among these records is medical and dental records. These documents are very useful for you to make proper decisions that might affect the health of the child. This awareness is important both when you’re in your child’s hands and making day-to-day decisions, and when you’re not, but may need to make larger-scale decisions.
As with medical records, you also have access to your child’s school records. Just like with health records, it’s just as imperative to have this access as they affect the child’s education. These records may also play a role in making decisions regarding the child’s recreational activities when they are not in school.
