It's hard to believe that school is about to begin (or already has begun in some counties!) in Georgia. The start of school also means the start of after school and weekend activities. This time of year can be particularly stressful for parents who are going through, or have recently gone through, a divorce, as the family adjusts to visitation with the kids' new, and likely busier, schedules. If your divorce is final, your final divorce decree should lay out each parent's rights as they relate to school and extracurricular activities. In Georgia, the final parenting plan must include language indicating that "both parents will have access to all of the children's records and information, including but not limited to, education, health, extra-curricular activities, and religious communications." Thus, even where one parent has primary physical custody, the other parent is also entitled to equal information about the child's school and extra-curricular activities. If you think you may have an issue getting information from your spouse, it is prudent to contact the school and/or extra-curricular entity to ask them to send you the information directly. This will cut down on any miscommunication. If your divorce is final, and there is no temporary order addressing custody and visitation in place, we recommend that you speak to your attorney about getting such an order in place, especially if you and your spouse are unable to come to an agreement. This will ensure that both parents get time with the children, and no one misses out on any important school or extracurricular events.
