Single Mom wondering about School with shared custody
Hi, I was wondering if anyone had any advice about my situation about divorce. My ex husband left my son and I when he was 9 months old. We went back home to Michigan and after two months returned to pick up some belongings. When I landed at the airport my ex served me with divorce papers (we were going through the process) but had not served anything prior to this. He did this because he found out if I have the baby in Michigan then he has to pay me child support which I didn’t even want nor ask for. Serving me in CA meant that my son can’t leave the state so therefore neither can I. He asked the judge for 50/50 custody and it was granted. He does not take care of my son during his time. He gives him to his parents who live an hour away from him and his parent teach my son to call them mom and dad. We earn about the same income so with 50/50 there is no child support. Anyway I am here now and I don’t have any family here and am just here to see my baby 50% of the time which really breaks my heart. My question though is about when school comes. I do not live near my ex. What happens to custody when he goes to preschool? Can he be taken away from me during the week? Does anyone know how this works? How do you know what school the child goes to assuming this will be a decision the judge makes?
