A: A court order should innumerate the rights and responsibilities of each parent. However, even if the court order doesn't address the non-custodial parents rights, S.C. Code Sec. 63-5-30 states that each parent, whether custodial or non-custodial,, has equal right to access to and right to obtain educational and medical records on their child, and equal right to participate in their child's school activities unless prohibited by a court order. If you need someone to interpret your court order, you need to take it to a lawyer for review and advice.
