BEASTIE BOYS on Parents’ Rights to Records; Know this LAW- MCA 93-5-26

You Have to Fightfor Your Right toPARENT!


With apologies to the Beastie Boys, it should NOT be a fight to get your child’s important school  and medical records.  Fortunately, by law in Mississippi, you are entitled to those records regardless of your Custody papers.


Miss. Code Ann., Sec. 93-5-26, concerns a noncustodial parent’s right of access to records and information pertaining to  minor children.

“Notwithstanding any other provisions of law…access to records…pertaining to a minor child, including but not limited to medical, dental and school records, shall not be denied to a parent because the parent is not the child’s custodial parent if such parent’s rights have not been terminated by adoption or by termination of parental rights proceeding.” Id.

As a parent you have the right to this information by law.  You can request medical records regarding your child’s health and prior appointments, you can get their school records and grades, whether the other parent gives it to you or not.

Armed with this Statute and a smile, schools and doctor’s offices have no right to refuse you this information.
