Residency Hearings

Have you received a letter in the mail from your school board requesting payment for out-of-district tuition, even though your child resides in the school district? You have the right to appeal through a school residency hearing. The attorneys and advocates of Whitted, Takiff + Hansen, LLC, can stand by your side to protect your rights and those of your child.

Commonly, when a child’s parents are not married and he or she spends time with both parents, schools become confused, or self-interested, and bill for tuition inappropriately.

If you believe that you should not owe out-of-district tuition, you have the right to a school residency hearing to dispute the residency determination. Our attoneys can provide you with the information you need, answer your questions, provide you with legal options, and represent you at the school residency hearing.
