Can a mother with joint custody change a child's school without permission?
Asked Oct 24, 2007, 01:57 PM
My Fiancé has a four year old, and with permission from her biological mother we moved about 50 miles away because my fiancé got a better job. She also said that she could go to school down where we are. To determine the new schedule we decided to met halfway to drop her off on thursdays and her mother argeed to bring her down the whole way every week on Mondays because she wanted an extra day with her. A month and a half has gone by and now the mother is getting tierd of driving so she is threating to take her out of school and moving her away to a different state. I know she cannot move her to another state but can she really take her out of school and have her go to school where she lives even she already agreed that she would go to school down with us? I need to know what law prohibits this if any so we can give her a copy. Please help! Thank You!
