Great Day Washington - Back to School Tips for Divorced Parents

Tracey Coates and Carlos Lastra appeared as guests on the WUSA9 morning show Great Day Washington, on Thursday, August 22, 2019.

It’s Back to School for children and families, and there are new classes, school routines and activities to manage. When parents are divorced, those things are even more challenging. There are often disputes about which school children should attend, public or private, which activities children should do, recreation or travel team, and how much one parent should pay for tuition, sports, lessons, supplies, books, computers, and clothes. Studies show divorce often has a negative effect on children’s school performance.

Family Law Co-Chairs Tracey Coates and Carlos Lastra talked about how to make Back to School easier for kids whose parents are divorced. They covered topics presented in their recent blog: Q&A Back to School Tips for Divorced Parents.
