Helping Parents With The Question Of Changing School Districts

It goes unsaid that parents want the best possible education for their children. So what happens if, after your divorce, you or your spouse wishes to have your child enroll in a different school district?

At Gormley and Johnson Law Offices, PLC, we can answer that question and help you work through your family law issue. We represent both mothers and fathers in these matters, and work to come up with an amicable solution.

Changing School Districts In Michigan

The issues surrounding school choice depend on the question of custody. If you have joint legal custody, major educational decisions must be made jointly. However, parents often don't see eye to eye on these matters.

In these situations, you will most likely need permission from the court to change schools. The court will consider why you're seeking the move and the unique aspects of your situation.

An experienced lawyer can help mold your case appropriately and present the necessary facts and information to the judge.

At our firm, we can help draft these arguments and pursue your wishes to change school districts. However, we also know that these problems are better when they are prevented. If you're suspecting that this might be an issue further down the line, we can help you plan proactively, so that your divorce paperwork includes provisions regarding changing school districts.
