Education and Activities Provisions in Custody Arrangements
Some people may wish to add provisions related to their children’s education and afterschool activities to their custody arrangements. Here are just a few common examples of some of these provisions.
- Important school information: The custody arrangement might contain information about the school the child will attend, as well as how each parent will be responsible for sharing information about report cards, school meetings, field trips, conferences, school website passwords and other important educational information.
- Participation in school activities: Your arrangement could include information about who gets to participate in which of the child’s school activities, such as open houses, conferences, social events and field trips. It could also outline each parent’s responsibility or ability to assist with schoolwork.
- Extracurricular activities: Your arrangement may outline the level of participation in the child’s extracurricular activities, as well as the extracurricular activities in which your child currently participates. With regard to new extracurricular activities your child might be interested in taking on, the arrangement can include plans for how you will share responsibilities related to those new activities.
- Expenses: The arrangement can outline responsibility for certain fees and expenses related to schooling and activities.
- Dispute resolution: The arrangement can include instructions for how you will resolve any disputes that arise between you and the other parent regarding education and activities.
