One way to get an edge in a child custody or visitation case is to demonstrate your active involvement with the child’s school and extra-curricular activities. An opportunity that is frequently missed is the opportunity to serve as a chaperone on a school trip.

Field trips to museums, band trips to competitions, and “away” games with the football team are all opportunities in which parents are recruited to serve as chaperones.

Chaperoning is a way to meet your child’s friends, teachers and coaches. It is way to learn the scuttlebutt as you ride along on the school bus or the caravan to the field trip or the competition. Especially for non-custodial parents, getting involved as a chaperone can raise one’s knowledge level of the child’s activities significantly, and serves to demonstrate the parent’s active investment in the child’s school-related activities. In fact, where the parents are fighting over visitation schedules, the opportunity to serve as a school chaperone may provide a significant opportunity for the non-custodial parent to get extra time with the child without offsetting the established visitation timetable.
