How to properly handle child custody during the school year

On Behalf of | Oct 27, 2017 | Child Custody

The school year brings about a lot of stress, worry and other emotions for children of all ages. If you have recently been through a divorce, there are plenty of things you can do to make sure that your children enjoy the school year. We will discuss those items in today’s post so you can properly handle child custody during the school year in Miami.

Make it a point to never turn your child into a messenger. Any changes in their school schedule or activities should be relayed to the other parent by you, not by your child. If you cannot speak to the other parent civilly in person or on the phone, you can always use email to relay this information. Your child should not be utilized as a messenger between you and the teacher either.

The school should never be used as a child custody swap location. The school might seem like a good location but if you and your former spouse still do not get along, this is not the place to exchange custody.

Do your best to plan the entire school year ahead of time, especially if you got divorced in the summer. Having a plan for pickup and dropoff, after school activities, and other events will make it easier on all parties involved.

Both parents need to be as involved in the child’s school life as possible. This includes attending teacher conferences, meetings, plays, games and helping with homework and projects when necessary.
