Hi, I’m Jason Lile, a dads’ rights attorney in Oklahoma. When going through a divorce or paternity proceeding, one of the biggest concerns for parents is the impact it will have on their child’s education. If you and your former partner chose a school for your child, changing that school can be challenging, especially if the child has an established relationship with the school. In such situations, it is essential to understand the limitations associated with changing a child’s school during an Oklahoma divorce case.
Typically, changing a child’s school is not considered in their best interest unless there is a compelling reason. A compelling reason may include both parents moving out of the school district or the divorce/separation itself. However, if you want to change your child’s school for other reasons, you need to approach the situation carefully.
Consulting with an Experienced Attorney
It would be best to consult with an experienced attorney who can help you negotiate the issue of school changes within the larger context of your divorce or paternity case. Attempting to remove your child from their current school unilaterally could lead to negative consequences in your case.
Having input into the choice of schools is essential for parents, especially if both parents share legal custody. If you disagree with your partner’s choice of school, you need to assert your argument with the help of an attorney. Your attorney can guide you on what steps to take to ensure your argument is heard and resolved in your favor.
