it has been a while since i have been online with the forum. for most of recent years my case has been stable. The issue i have right now is the mother hasnt been taking our son to school in a timely manner (not punctual) and missed alot of school all together. last year he missed 40 days of school. I am of the mind the shared care regime should reverse ( i become the primary care giver and she gets 37% care) to improve school attendance and improve the care of our child.
I have school reports that have officially said the child would achieve much better if he was in school for the required time and truency is an issue in his grades.
he currently goes to a school which was half way between the 2 households which was a 15-20 min drive. the mother has since moved a further 4 kms and has asked to move his schooling to around the corner from her place (very convenient) before consent orders were made a child psychologist interviewed the mother and it was made officially clear that any moves she will still honour the school which is in fact in the order.
last year we had a legal conference in which she argued her case, i argued mine and we were both issued the certificates required to take each other to court.
basically im wondering how much bearing the truency issue will have in "rice and asplund" and furthermore the chances of a father getting primary care of a 7-8 year old son to make sure the child acheives well in school and gets the care he deserves.
there is no conflict these days however due to the issues at hand there has been heated e mails none the less.
any help or advice will be appreciated
