Child Custody Factor: Extent of Parent Involvement In Child’s School & Extracurricular Activities

CHILD CUSTODY SERIES: 20 Factors A Judge Must Consider When Determining Issues of Parental Responsibility and Time-Sharing

The sixteenth factor to consider is:
(p) The demonstrated capacity and disposition of each parent to participate and be involved in the child’s school and extracurricular activities.

This factor takes into consideration the frequency and regularity of each parent’s involvement in the child’s life with regards to school and extracurricular activities.

If for example, one of the parents is much more involved with the child’s school by meeting with the child’s teachers, participating in school events and volunteering, this parent would be considered more favorably when it comes to parental responsibility and time-sharing.

Likewise if one parent is more involved in helping with homework, taking the child to extracurricular activities as well as attending the child’s events relating to their extracurricular activities, the court would consider this favorably as well.

Parental involvement is beneficial to the healthy development of a child, and therefore the courts look at this factor when considering the best interests of the child.
