My sons father and I were never married and never went to…

Customer Question
My sons father and...

My sons father and I were never married and never went to court for custody - we shared his weeks evenly - his father enrolled him into a preschool in another county without my knowledge or consent - the school refused my unenroll mental as they had no clue I, the mother, existed. Is this in any way legal? Also, my pediatricians office changed my son's address from mine (of 4 years) to his father's so that immunization records look like my son live in the schools county. Who can I hold responsible for this?

Lawyer's Assistant: Because education law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Nj

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No although I did file an emergent claim in order to get my son bavk - essentially his father is dictating when I can see him

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

My claim was denied

The police refuse to be involved because they are not family court.

So you may have to file legal custody here to get the child back.
