Experienced Bay Area attorneys will tell their family law clients that when one parent refuses to notify the other parent about important school events, medical appointments, extracurricular activities that you have to ask the Court for a specific order addressing the problem.
Here are some examples of what you can request:
(1) Order that requires the time frame for information to be given. For example, within 48 hours of scheduling a routine medical appointment, notice must be provided to the other parent.
(2) Order that requires weekly exchange of information or a shared google calendar.
(3) Order that both parents be included on all school and medical communications.
In the alternative, we like solutions such as Our Family Wizard and 2houses, which are programs that keep track of your Child’s schedule and other important information. These programs are online apps that can be accessed from your phone or computer.
