Navigating Child Custody: Back to School Edition Part II

It is back-to-school season and time to prepare for your child's return in a variety of ways; especially in the context of a child custody arrangement. Aside from trying to fight off other parents for that last pack of college-ruled notebooks at the store, there are also details to work out between you and your child's other parent. So, to help prepare for another school year here are three child custody reminders for parents:

  1. Revise and confirm your schedule

    You may have been operating under a temporary summer schedule for the last three months. Make sure all parties are clear that you will be (most likely) reverting back to your same school year schedule and clearly define how that transition will work to avoid conflict. When in doubt, consult your custody order.
  2. Consider your expenses

    Have your finances changed during the summer? Does your child need a new school uniform or back pack? Talk to his or her other parent to see where you can split the costs and avoid spending unnecessarily.
  3. Review the school calendar and plan in advance

    Most schools provide parents with a copy of their academic calendar in paper form and also post it online. Go over the schedule in advance and make sure your child's other parent is aware of all important dates. Divide the responsibilities as much as possible and know who will be getting your child to a specific event with everything he or she needs to be prepared.
