Joseph CordellTeachers are often called into court to testify regarding parental involvement in the children’s lives, particularly the educational aspect. The best thing you can do for yourself and your child is to ensure that you are not cut out of your child’s education, according to Cordell & Cordell CEO Joseph Cordell’s latest Huffington Post column.

“More often than not, it is the mother who has the time to volunteer at school to help out,” Cordell writes. “It’s Mom who usually is the one the school calls, who handles carpool, who drops off the snacks. Teachers see moms do this every day. Fair or unfair, when a dad does these things, it sticks out because few dads do so.”

It may just make the difference in your custody case.
