A Judge has the ability to order anything he or she wants to. If you believe that is inappropriate, you would need to appeal the decision and attempt to establish, to a higher court, why the decision is incorrect and should be overturned. I believe your real question is whether or not the Judge did the appropriate thing and that would depend on the particular situation. I suppose the Judge could order you to drive the child to the other school district and if you did not, disallow any overnights in your home to allow the other parent to get the child to school.

Keep in mind that this advice is based purely on the little bit of information that you have given to me. There certainly may be other factors that would change my opinion. Further, no one can rely on advice from an attorney who has not been retained. You will only be able to rely on advice from an attorney who you have actually retained. Good luck! Rob Gleaner

sounds like you have a serious problem, and the drive to the school is too long for you to handle.
