Access to Children’s School and Medical Records

Maryland attorney, Heather L. Sunderman, has a helpful post at her blog, Maryland Family Law, noting that even non-custodial parents are entitled to see their children’s medical and school records.

Maryland law states:

Unless otherwise ordered by a court, access to medical, dental and educational records concerning the child may not be denied to a parent because the parent does not have physical custody of the child.  Section 9-104 of the Family Law Article of the Maryland Code.

Read Dave’s post about why he missed his son’s award at school.  Whether your state has a similar law or not, access to records is one of the things you will want to include in your checklist for a Parenting Agreement.
