Q: I am only custodial parent. Someone else withdrew my daughter from school without my permission she is 16. Legal?
I know who is sheltering her. I don't know if that same person withdrew her. She knows we want her home but this person allows her to do whatever she wants and opens the door for her. I've sent police, nothing stops it.
A: I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing this during this time. It does not sound like the actions to withdraw your daughter from school were legal. You most likely need to file an enforcement action or another motion to have your daughter brought back to you based on the custody agreement or orders. I would suggest that you setup an over the phone consultation with an attorney who can review what is in place and how to take the necessary steps to get your daughter to return home and re-enroll her in school.
