California courts generally do not become over involved in decisions regarding educational choices when making child custody orders. However, a California Family Law Court judge has the discretion to determine whether a particular school or even homeschooling is appropriate for the child.
And like all issues before the court, the judge when making a decision regarding educational choices in a child custody case, they will look first and foremost at the child’s best interest. If a child has had stability with a particular school or a particular type of schooling, and the child appears to be doing well, the court will generally not upset the status quo. However, if the child is not doing well in school and a change in custody is requested, the family law courts are given the latitude to make such orders that are consistent with the child’s best interest.
In order to persuade the Judge to make an order changing the current practice, you will need an experienced family law attorney to assist you in representing your case. A licensed attorney will be able to assist you in preparing documents and evidence that will help you present your case to the Court.
