In the past I have agreed for my daughter to attend school using his address since she has 2 siblings on his side. We both recently moved and are in different school districts. We have joint physical and legal custody, but he is listed as primary. Everything is 50/50, incl all major decision making. I told my ex that we needed to discuss a few things regarding our daughter, incl the school she will go to, he has avoided having this discussion.
My daughter is almost 11 and going into the 5th grade, and this will be the 3rd change to a new school b/c of his frequent moving. I know that my daughter would benefit greatly if I could switch things so she goes to school by my house. She would be more established and not bounce around because I RARELY move.
How can I legally make this change?I also would like to get the parenting plan modified, making me primary. My ex has proven his inability to care for our daughter(or his other 2 kids) without help from his mom. Examples like cooking, daily cleaning, laundry, help with homework, doctor or dentist appointments, clothes and/or school supply shopping, etc. are all done by his mom. His mom even attended both parent/teacher conferences this last year, while he stayed home. I feel he relies completely on his mom, and is unable to care for our daughter on his own. To top it all off, I recently received copies of police reports from when he was planning to commit suicide, which he hid from me. He is unstable on many levels, and it worries me when my daughter is in his care.
