Is it OK for them to stay here and get enrolled in school?
Expert:  Samuel II replied 1 year ago.


This is Samuel and I will discuss this and provide you information in this regard.

Yes, they can be enrolled in school under the Father's custody, as long as there is No court order granting the custody to the other parent. In other words, if there is no court ordered custody to either parent, then the parent in Possession is the one in control and can make decisions.

Expert:  Samuel II replied 1 year ago.

If the Mother has not been served, then he needs to continue to have the service attempted. In the meantime, he also may want to Petition the Court for Temporary Custody of the children and that way he will have a court order in that regard.
