Your child’s education is one of the biggest ways that you can help them to succeed in life. The issue with this is that not all children need the same things to learn. When you live with your child’s other parent, you might be able to come up with solutions to the educational challenges that the children have. When you aren’t in a relationship with the other parent any longer, you might find that coming up with ways to help the children that are mutually agreeable is a challenge.
One way that you can help to alleviate stress in this area is to have a plan spelled out in the custody plan for handling these matters. There are two ways that decisions can happen. One is that you and your ex work as a team on all decisions related to the child’s education. The other is that one parent has the responsibility to make those decisions on their own. Which one applies to your case depends on what is in the custody paperwork.
We know that coming to agreements with your ex about the child custody issues might not be easy. Remember that everything you decide has to be in the best interests of the children, so you can’t consider how decisions will impact you or your ex. We can work with you to figure out what options exist and possibly come up with creative custody solutions.
The goal that we have right now is that you need to get things set up so that your children can have the stability that comes with parents who are on the same page. Once the foundation of the parenting plan is set, you can fine-tune the terms so they fit the child’s needs.
