For many parents, back-to-school season can present various challenges and increase the level of stress they experience on a daily basis. However, if you are working through a custody dispute, fighting for your visitation rights, or are dealing with other custody-related legal matters, this time of year can be particularly difficult. Our firm knows how tricky some of these situations can be, especially if your child’s other parent does not want to cooperate or is difficult to communicate with.
Sometimes, parents are able to work out an agreement that addresses which parent will attend school events or help the child with extracurricular activities. When setting up a parenting agreement or visitation schedule, it is important to review your child’s school schedule and aim to set up an agreement that will work best for everyone. Some parents are worried that their child’s school responsibilities will interfere with their ability to see their child after a divorce, so it is important to review all factors.
Although custody and other family law issues can be stressful, it is essential for you to do all you can to obtain a positive outcome, which is especially important for children. If you have a child in school, they may have their own stressors to work through and you should do everything you can to protect their interests. If possible, you should do what you can to simplify things and prevent a dispute from interfering with their school performance.
