You mention you have a separation agreement that is signed. First, I would inform the ex via email that you do not consent to the changing the schools. I would do so in a polite business like manner.


I would then file the signed separation agreement with the courts. By filing it with the courts, it essentially becomes a court order. You will be assigned an order number (going off of recollection of when I did it about 10 years ago). I would then inform the ex that you filed the agreement with the courts and provide them with the order number. Then advise the ex that you still do not consent to the changing of schools and that any attempt to do so will now be in breach of the agreement, now order.


Just know that a signed agreement and an order are both completely enforceable. If the agreement provides that you have joint custody and share parenting (in whatever % it may be), than the ex is in breach of the agreement. Advise her that should she breach of X clause of the agreement you will take reasonable steps to remedy her breach through the courts.

My exw said she gave the school our separation agreement already and am unsure why the school would accept it as it states we have joint custody, and school knows I disagree. A side note, exw had our agreement notorized and never shared a copy with me. She only gave me a draft. I will also be contacting a lawyer for advice Monday.
I thought the in the original post you said that child sharing agreement wasnt in place and not included in the separation agreement? Did I miss something? Has there ever been something signed by the both of you stating the custody arrangements?

My reading of it is that the ex supposedly has a fully executed version, one that they won't provide to the OP. All the OP has is an unsigned version.


If the OP only has an unsigned version, they will need to file a motion in court for custody and parenting time. I would base my arguments around the draft version of the agreement that the OP has, stating that, in the event a completely signed version is not produced providing otherwise, that both the ex and the OP were basing the custody arrangement off of the the draft agreement. That the parenting time schedule and custody arrangement from the agreement is the status quo of the past number of years, as evidenced by a calendar produced by the OP.


In the event that a fully signed version is not produced, than no agreement has been made and that given the lack of an agreement or court order, each parent has enjoyed defacto joint custody since separation, further entrenching status quo.


Not having a signed version of the agreement isn't great, but not fatal. Just base your arguments around that all aspects of co-parenting were based upon the terms of the draft agreement, which you believe to be signed by both parties (however you do not have one), and that you reasonably believed such agreement to be in effect.
