Can I move my kids to a different school district without dad agreeing?
If he disagrees and we dont go to court before the move, what are potential repercussions?
3 attorney answers
If you share legal custody with the father of the children, you need his permission to move school districts. The court will want you to try mediation before filing a motion. You should contact an attorney in your area.
As counsel stated, if there is joint legal custody, you would need to go through the steps indicated in order to move the school district over his objection.

If you share legal custody, it must be joint decision. If you cannot agree, you should try to mediate first. If that does not resolve it, you must file a motion and seek a court decision. You should retain legal counsel.
