What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? Texas
I have already contacted my attorney's office, however he is on vacation and his paralegal does not know the answer. I'm kind of in need of an immediate answer or at least a solution until he returns.
I am enrolling my daughter in school tomorrow for the new school year. In June I attended mediation to finalize a petition for modification. We settled and came to an agreement. Opposing counsel wrote up the final order and sent it over in early July.
There were some errors that needed to be fixed before I would sign it. That still has not been done so the final order has not been filed with the clerk for the judge's signature. Nothing changed in custody or visitation at mediation. The only modification that was made were health insurance responsibility, child support, some additional permanent injunctions.
I must have a copy of the current custody agreement when I enroll my daughter at school tomorrow to prove I am the custodial parent with exclusive right to designate the residence, exclusive rights over education and the right to designate a competent adult for pick up.
Since the 'pending' final order and my divorce decree state these same things, can I use my divorce decree at enrollment? Then when the final order is signed on the modification, I could give them a new copy at that time?
The school made it sound like I would not be able to enroll my daughter without proof she resides with me.
