I mostly live with my aunt (who is in the school district I want to attend), but occasionally spend time with my parents (who are my legal guardians). The school called us and said we were committing a Class C misdemeanor and in order for me to attend the school, we'd need to change my legal guardianship from my parents to my aunt (who is extremely old and sick and has to care for her disabled husband). Both my parents and aunt feel strongly against doing so. We talked to a friend who works in the school and were told that all we had to fill out was an Affidavit for Enrollment of Child Whose Parents Reside Out of District. Based on the situation and what we were told, this seemed to be right. The school wouldn't take the form and said that we have to change legal guardians. What can we do?
Child custody involves decisions about who will be responsible for a child, including parental rights, for both married and unmarried parents, and adoptions.
