Is Summer care covered?
« on: Jul 21, 2005, 04:17:37 PM »
Court order states" “Parties Shall equally share all expenses for extracurricular activities, tutors, camps, after school programs, music lessons and mandatory school fees”


Other parent changed hrs from getting off at 6:30am to 9:30am but still somehow thinks they have the right of first refusal, which court order specifically states "shall not be left with baby sitters".  I needed someone to watch the kids at 7:30am till...

It was necessary to place kids in a Summer Program which is in all respects a day-camp; socialize, relaxing, swimming, cooking, arts &crafts, games, field trips, special events, playshops,sports, pursue small and large group interest.

1)Does the summer program fall into the court ordered mentioned? How would you argue that it does?





Order also states "party parenting shall be responsible for taking minor child to xxx(therapist) to child's weekend appointment" .

2)When other parent does not take child what options and remedies should be asked for?

I'd say yes, but it's arguable either way. Ask the court if you can't agree.

Motion for Contempt, and ask the court to ordr the other parent to reimburse you for a portion of past sessions paid and future sessions, on theory that failing to consistently follow the theraputic course reduces the value of the services rendered and likely will result in greater future costs.
