Wappingers Falls, NY asked in Child Custody, Child Support and Family Law for New York

Q: With joint physical custody does one parent owning home and other renting impact what school child attends?

The child was already registered at school with father's address due to the mother temporarily losing custody during Kindergarten registration. The mother now has custody rights again. Father purchased a home in the child's current school district. Mother lives with family in the same district but different school zone. The visitation schedule has the week equally is split in half with exchange Wednesday after school so both parents have equal school time. Does owning or renting impact what parent gets residential custody?
