Q: We share joint legal custody and I have physical custody. Our toddler is 3 and a half and I brought up to my coparent a really good preschool I found for our son but He does not agree with that preschool. The preschool I found is in the city where I live. But father is stating we should be picking a school in between both our homes. What do I do if we cannot agree on a preschool for our child?
A: Many joint custody agreements have provisions specifying what to do in the event of a conflict – so your first stop is the agreement. If there is no such provision, then you can informally follow the “Professional Model” (which most joint custody agreements have anyway) – meaning you retain an educational consultant & be guided by his/her recommendation.
