Summer is in full swing, and in less than one month the children will all
be back in school. At that point, they will be involved in extra-curricular
activities, will listen to teachers, and will be exposed to all sorts
of new and educational pursuits. As a non-custodial spouse or a co-parent,
you have the right to know where your children are attending school and
what sorts of religious systems or theories they will be exposed to.
Fall is fast-approaching, and at Claery & Green we suggest researching
your child's school for next year before he or she actually attends.
If your ex-spouse chose the school, you will want to research and make
sure that the establishment is to your liking before you blindly allow
your children to visit there every day.
You have the ability to research all the teachers that you or child will
be with, all extracurricular professionals, all coaches and more. Even
if you are the non-custodial spouse, you still deserve to always be in
the loop. If in your research you find something that concerns you, such
as a teacher that has a history of sexual abuse or teaches the children
a religion that you don't agree with, then you need to contact a lawyer
to take action.
A Los Angeles family attorney may be able to assist you in your case and
help you work through the concerns that you have. A lawyer can wither
write a letter to the court or write an emergency order prompting the
court to get involved. Also, a lawyer can file a modification request.
Don't hesitate to get an attorney involved today if you are uncomfortable
with the way that your child is being raised. Taking action now may benefit
your child for the rest of his or her life.
