Custody Documents

Can a joint custody parent give the school permission to send and receive email about a child to his girlfriend without the other parents permission?

No. That would be a violation of the child's and the parent's

privacy. The girl friend has no right to receive any information

about the child. The father needs to take a more active role with

his child and not pass it off to a girl friend.

I would certainly question the violation of privacy rights by

any school that used email correspondence. A "girlfriend" who is

not the biological parent. Has no legal or ethical right to

information of minor children. If the a parent gave permission, and

the school released such information, the other biological parent

has every right to object. And the legal right to have it
