i am the custodial parent (through judgment) and my 17yr old daughter quit going to school and took off to her moms.now it has came to my attention that me ex is enrolling her in her district without my knowing (meaning my daughter or the mom told me). is this legal?
If the 17-year-old has decided she would rather live with her mother, it is unlikely that you could convince a judge to try to force her to move back in with you. Assuming the 17-year-old is going to live with her mother (again, because she seems to have decided that is what she wants), there is no valid objection to the child enrolling in school based on her mother's address. You have not provided a lot of detail here. But you should maybe let go of the idea of trying to control the situation, and focus on maintaining a close relationship with your daughter, even though the circumstances are not as you would prefer. If you interfere and try to prevent the school from allowing your daughter to enroll, that is something your daughter may find it difficult to forgive, and it is likely to do more harm than good for your daughter's future vis-a-vis her education.
