Our divorce order states both mom and dad have 2 weeks each summer for vacations but the vacations need to be scheduled around school so the kids are not missing school. Ex wife just sent a message stating she is pulling the kids out of school in...
No way to really answer without seeing the parenting plan. Off the cuff, I would agree with mom's interpretation. The 2 week summer provision is not about education, it is about the children having 2 weeks of uninterrupted time with each parent during the summer. Absent something specific in the parenting plan, so long as mom has the right to physical custody during the time in question (in February), she can, essentially, do whatever she wants with the kids (as can you when you have physical custody). Now, there may be other issues as to whether this trip interferes with your visitation/custody, or leaving the jurisdiction (do you need to consent) etc. But to your core question, the summer vacation provisions typically only relate to the summer vacations, those provision imply nothing more.
Also, I am updating the practice area designation, this is not really an education law question, but a child custody question.See question
I am sponsoring an international student but my income will change a lot for next year and I won't be able to provide for him anymore. How can I cancel my sponsorship? Thank you Ellen
You need to speak to the agency that facilitates the placement.See question
My son has been attending public school until this year. His mother placed him in private school, and now expects that I pay half the tuition.
Depends on what your parenting plan says? Typically, education expenses are separate from child support. States may vary on that issue, so you want to consult with a family law attorney in your state to analyze your options. The next question is who (or do both of you) has education decision making If education decision making is shared, one parent cannot (should not) unilaterally put the child in a different school. However, if the other parent has sole education decision making, there probably isn't much you can do. But again, the parenting plan is the first place to look. Then speak to an attorney and have that attorney advise you as to your specific situation.See question
I know Colorado is a one-party consent state, but do not know if there are exceptions regarding confidential discussions (attorney/client). I would just like to know if such a recording would be legal, or illegal to make. I suspect that if it is l...
Assuming you are a party to the conversation (i.e. you and the lawyer are engaged in the conversation), then it would not be illegal for you to record the conversation. To the extent the conversation can be used in anything, as you suspect, is a different question.
However, the overall context of the situation (the recording) matters. How you record, whether you are a participant, who else is there, all matter.
The deeper question is why you feel the need to record the conversation? If you don't trust your attorney, get a new attorney. If you don't think you need an attorney, then have a frank discussion with your attorney about your concerns.See question

You probably need to get an attorney to assist you at this time. It is a big deal, and ordeal, when an attorney dies. Whether you are entitled to any money depends on the retainer agreement; that hasn't changed.
Have you since retained other counsel to assist you with the underlying case for which you hired this attorney. That attorney might be able to help you.See question

I doubt you have any sort of viable lawsuit. And until you take steps to resolve the issue directly (with the school), it would be inappropriate to sue. Contact the school and try to get it corrected. However, bear in mind it will likely take some time and you will hit brick walls, but keep at it.See question

In addition to George's answer, with which I agree, some key facts need to be determined. (1) How did these students access your cell phone. (2) Did they have physical possession of your phone. (3) If yes to (2), did they transmit the photos off the phone and then show them (or did they show them from your phone) (4) How did the faculty member get the phone or pictures. (5) How much time has passed.See question

You should direct this question to your family law attorney. But from what I read, TN has separated decision making from residential time. If your parenting plan states that education is a joint decision, then there is no pre-set rule that the child goes to school where the PRP resides, it is subject to joint decision. Of course, it makes practical sense that the child attend school in the district with the parent who has physical custody during the majority of the school week and that is likely the result you would get in mediation.
In the short term, this is something you need to try to work out with the other parent. Like it or not, even though you and your former spouse couldn't stay together, you will have an ongoing relationship until your kid(s) are grown; so both of you need to figure out how to make that relationship work.
Note, I am updating the practice area designation, this is not an education law issue, but more a child custody question.
Here is what appears to be a good article on the topic.

A few key facts need to be addressed. Did you graduate or obtain the certificate that you sought. To do anything, you need to articulate how you have been harmed. Colleges (even semi fraudulent schools like Everest) are encouraged to admit and accommodate students with disabilities. So, by itself, it is not clear you were improperly admitted.
You are probably outside of any statute of limitations anyway, but to even start a case, you would first need to show that you didn't complete the program, and the reason you didn't complete the program was because of your dyslexia. And, that your dyslexia and its severity was known to the school at the time you were enrolled, and that the severity of your dyslexia could not be reasonably accommodated.See question
