This post concludes and recaps my post on how Las Vegas fathers can deal with situations in which their child is failing in school. I decided to write on this topic as, for obvious reasons, a child’s poor academic performance can cause a high level of tension between parents. When dealing with such a situation it is important that a father act in a way which is in his child’s best interests. The goal of my last several articles has been to provide information which will help dads to understand their options. It has also been my goal to provide information which will assist in the selection of a family law lawyer. If you need assistance then contact my office today to speak with an attorney.
I have addressed several issues over my recent articles. Matters which I have analyzed include:
- How to co-parent a child who is failing in school
- When the Clark County Family Court will intervene in schooling
- Whether a child’s grades justify changing custody
These are important issues for a dad to understand. First, when dealing with a failing child it is important to offer them a supportive environment. Working with your ex, in a constructive way, is a crucial part of such co-parenting. Second, whether the Court will intervene into educational issues will always depend on several specifics. Finally, a Court will not be inclined to change custody simply because a child is failing; a parent wishing to change custody will need to show that the child’s academic struggles are, in fact, due to poor parenting by the mother.
One point I cannot stress enough is that it is important to try to work with your ex when it comes to your child’s education. Arguing with the mother and laying blame will almost certainly have a negative impact on the child’s academic development. This, in turn, is detrimental to the child’s future. If you feel you have done everything that you can to deal with the mother, and that you have no other options, then speak with an attorney rather than escalating tensions between yourself and your ex. As a Las Vegas fathers’ rights lawyer I have handled many cases which involve a failing child. Contact my office today to schedule an initial consultation.
