Morning all ,

 

Very quick question , when it comes to the decision making for your children . I wish to have equal say in schools , areas the children live in , doctors etc even if I do not have a 50/50 split on physical time with the children . Is that a given ?

 

what I want to protect against is my ex moving the kids to different schools , applying to schools without my written consent etc . . I know you can apply to block them moving after the event but ideally I’d want something in place that said she wouldn’t move them without my agreement .

 

does that make sense ?

 

thanks

Hi,

If your going through courts, you could ask for these conditions to be placed in the order, so that your consulted in childs education, medical and housing matters.

thanks but what is the standard ? Can she move the children’s school or should I always be consulted and in agreement ? I will definitely try to get a child arrangement order that states we must both agree, but without one can she just move out of the area and so change the kids schools

hi,

the standards are mentioned here: https://www.gov.uk/parental-rights-responsibilities

some schools are strict, and do not allow kids to be pulled out before talking to both parents. I have had the same happen to me, kids moving homes and schools and I find out later.
