It’s become more and more common for parents to enter into Shared Parenting rather than one parent having legal custody of a child. Oftentimes, parents reside in the same school district. Difficulties arise when one parent relocates to another district. Whenever possible, it’s best for the parents to attempt to work out these problems without Court involvement. Issues such as enrollment, transportation to and from school, and to and from activities are specific to each family, and within each family, each child. The first step when these problems arise should be to sit down and speak with the other parent and try to work out a solution.
However, if you’ve tried that and not been able to agree, you may need to seek legal advice and a Court order. At Maciorowski Law, we can advise if and when you should file regarding these issues, or in the alternative, advise you on how to best approach the matter with the other parent. If you’re having these problems, please call and schedule a consultation.
