A: Greetings from the North Coast. Under the statute you have Residual Parental Rights and Responsibilities. You should not take your child to the hospital or doctor for a routine healthcare issue without cooperation from the Legal Guardians, though you absolutely have a right to be present and have access to all academic and healthcare records.
