Can I get transcripts of text messages FROM MY OWN ACCOUNT?

We are on a family share plan, and our teenage daughter (age 13) is on our account.  We'd like a transcript of her text messages, and since we are the owners of the plan and she is a minor, I was wondering if we can get these.

Not without a court order, and even then it's only for a limited span of time.

 

Several posts all essentially the same question. A search for "content" in the Messaging (Text, Picture, IM, etc.) board brings up dozens of posts:

 

Obtaining details of text messages

Retrieving content

messaging

Text message content

text message contents

Finding out the content of son's text messaging...can add something to the bill?

Daughter just turned 13 & has a cell phone w/Texting. How do I monitor the content of her texts?

 

...you get the idea.

Thanks- I saw some other questions about it but didn't know if it made any difference that I was the owner on the account and the person with the phone was my own minor child (why would I need a court order to get my own account texts- I can totally see that I'd need that to get someone else's though)?

Any text messaging involves 2 parties, the sender and the recipient. Your child may be your legal charge, but anyone they converse with isn't.
