    "WE" can't do anything. Dad can go to court and enforce the order for the child to attend school and live with HIM.

    You have no standing, and I'm sure when you begin inserting yourself in this matter, mom will push back.

    I suggest you allow dad and mom to duke this one out (in court), and all you need to do is watch.

    There is no way a court will order that stepson goes on STEPMOM's lease or anything else involving stepmom...UNLESS Dad is actually living with Stepmom.

    Now. Why aren't y'all living together?

    (That would be called "fraud", incidentally)

    I know a little about Housing or Section 8. In order for your stepchild to be listed as a resident in anyway you would need legal guardianship or otherwise face losing your housing voucher

    I wonder if that's why Dad isn't living with Stepmom....

    @ Shrinkmaster thank you for your answer...I know I could face losing my housing voucher and this is why I'm asking what needs to be done legally...I'm not trying to do anything without taking correct legal process...THANKS AGAIN!

    I suggest you lose the 'tude if you want help here.

    Expect Mom to take Dad right back to court to have kiddo remain in the current school district.
