We were just evicted from our house and I have to stay with family until I can get a job and get back on my feet. My son doesn't want to stay there, he wants to stay with his dad and go to school there until I get my own house. How do I go about doing that ? Do I have to give him temporary custody so that he can go to that school?

A: Check with the school in father's district to find out what they will require to allow him to enroll in that district. They might need a copy of the court's custody order. You might have to file with the court for a change of custody to his father if the school requires that.

A: If the Father owns property in the school district, it should not be an issue to enroll him, otherwise, you may need a Court Order that states that Father is the Residential Parent for School Purposes.
