Can You Switch Your Child's School?

If you are a part of a co-custody agreement, you should make sure to discuss choices with a spouse before you decide to switch your child’s school. Only a parent with legal custody of the child has the right to make decisions about that child’s education. A San Fernando divorce attorney at Cutter & Lax can help you to work through this case.

You may need to look back at your divorce decree and see what legal custody privileges you were given at the time of the divorce. If you are a non-custodial parent, the court can issue penalties or corrections if you should choose to switch your child’s school without any permission. If you believe that you should have legal custody, our team can fight for you in court and work to show that this is in the best interests of the children. Read more about this on the blog today!
