By Isabel Machado, Esq.

Are noncustodial parents entitled to notice of IEP meetings?
Can parents whose rights have been terminated file for due process?
How is residency determined when parents have joint custody?

Special education law attorney Isabel Machado clarifies these issues and more, explaining the rights of divorced, separated or never-married parents and your district's obligations to them under the IDEA -- so you're prepared to handle issues that arise when parents disagree about their child's services.

Along with an understanding of the different types of legal custody arrangements, you get guidance to:

  • Determine the right questions to ask divorced or separated parents
  • Review and accurately interpret custody orders and restraining orders
  • Identify who has the legal right to request and consent to evaluations
  • Ensure that consent for the IEP placement is proper
  • Maintain student records in accordance with FERPA

Plus, you get a 3-page checklist walking you through all the issues that must be addressed when parents have joint custody!
