Little girl with backpackThis is the first post in a series which will address the topic of how Las Vegas fathers should proceed when their child is failing in school. I feel it is necessary to write on this topic due to the fact that co-parenting can be increasingly difficult when a child is not succeeding academically. A dad may not know what to do and he may not understand his options when such a situation arises. It is important to understand that you can potentially deal with the situation through the Clark County Family Court. If your child is failing and you need legal assistance then contact my office to speak with a lawyer.

I will be addressing several topics over my coming articles. Issues which I will analyze include:

  • How to deal with the situation through co-parenting
  • When the Court will become involved in a child’s educational development
  • Whether a child’s academic performance is a basis to change custody

These are important topics to understand for several reasons. First, it is always in the best interests of a child for parents to resolve such situations without involving the legal system. Second, the Clark County Family Court will involve itself if a parent is not taking steps to ensure that a child is doing their homework, if parent teacher conferences are being missed, or if a parent is otherwise uninvolved with trying to fix the situation. Third, the more it appears that a child’s struggles are due to the negligence of a parent then the more likely a judge may be to modify the current custody arrangement.

It is important to understand that no two situations are the same and that how the judge will rule in any given case is situation specific. When speaking with an attorney regarding your child’s struggles it will be important to discuss the amount of time in which the youth has had problems, steps which have been taken to assist the child, and whether or not the mother is sharing information with you. If necessary, your representative can bring the situation to the Court’s attention. As a Las Vegas fathers’ rights lawyer I have dealt with many such cases.
