With the start of the fall school year right around the corner, families are under pressure to plan for all of the unknowns, most notably—the unknown with the start of the school. There are so many uncertainties families are facing:
- What if I don’t want my children going back to school in the fall?
- Who will watch my children if they don’t go back to school full-time?
- If I reduce my hours to be home with the children will my child support obligation be modified?
- I fear my ex will not be dependable with virtual learning, so how do I ensure my kids are getting the help they need when they are at the other parent’s home?
- If my ex can be home for the kids, will I lose primary placement?
These are just a few of the many important questions you may have as we are rounding the corner to the start of school. This is uncharted territory for the courts, so talking with a family law attorney who can help find reasonable and workable solutions for your family is a prudent move to make. Equally as important, talking to an attorney now allows you to be proactive, rather than reactive, to all of the changes fall may bring.
