My ex has custody of our son. He failed 1/2 of his classes last semester and is performing VERY poorly in 1/2 is classes this semester (low D or F). He does well (B’s and A’s) on tests IF he takes them. The school consistently says he doesn’t turn in homework, is unprepared and is absent on days when there are quizzes or tests and doesn’t make them up. He has skipped many classes and is frequently late to first period (at least 25 - 50% of the time). It is highly unlikely he will be promoted to the next grade. I’ve tried to follow-up with his mother and am never able to get report cards or updates from her. Recently, he missed turning in an important project that counted as a test grade even though I followed up with her repeatedly that it was due and all she said was ‘he said he did it’. She has not notified us of his poor performance or attendance issues. We find out all issues directly from the school. Despite repeated requests, she will not provide report cards.
Is failing school and the custodial parents unwillingness to communicate and address the situation a viable complaint for contempt? (the order says she is responsible for communicating on issues regarding the child including school performance . . . which she hasnt). We have joint custody with visitation.
