    the governing document

    ...is ignored. "They" just do not seem to understand the delicacies and fine balance of a divorce situation. I don't want to get in hip-deep, but @Bluegoldgirl, I feel your pain- and have felt your pain (different school- same "just work it out among the two of you, what's the big deal" diffident attitude).

    I'm sorry about your plight. Groton is likely suffering with an antiquated computer system that reflects the archaic standard of only one primary custodian. We experienced this is the past at a local private school. As maddening as it was, there wasn't anything personal. However, the functionaries at the school had no control over it and resisted change.

    Schools are progressive in ways but still stuck in the distant past in other. So many people are true joint legal true physical these days. You might want to speak to someone like a Dean to encourage them to modernize, but it will likely take several years at the rate these unintentionally hidebound things change at such institutions. Maybe your efforts will help the next person in your situation say 5 years from now.
