Education plans must be considered carefully in child custody

On Behalf of | Feb 8, 2019 | Child Custody

Deciding on the education plans for your children can be difficult, but it is an important aspect of child custody when you and your ex aren’t in a relationship any longer. In some cases, this needs to be addressed right away because a decision about the school district is going to have to be made. This is often the case when both parents live in different districts and the time the child spends with both parents is equal.

We know that you probably have your ideas about what needs to happen for your children’s schooling. Your ex might have some ideas, too. When these are the same, things are easy. You have to tread carefully when the ideas are different. We can help you figure out what options you have so that you can try to find one that meets your children’s needs.

When you are thinking about what school your children should attend, the academic aspect is obviously important, but you also need to think about other points like whether the school has extracurricular programs for your children.

Another consideration is transportation. You have to be sure that your child can get to school and back home and that they have a way to get to other school-related activities. This might take some work with your ex to make it all happen as it needs to.

We are ready to help you find solutions that work for your situation so you can get them put into the parenting plan. These might have to be creative, but it is often possible to work out terms that everyone can live with and that allow the children to get what they need from school.
