To provide guidance to families with existing Chapter 50 custody and/or visitation orders during the COVID-19 pandemic, commonly referred to as the novel coronavirus, the Family Court Advisory Commission issues the following recommendations. The goal of these recommendations is to encourage the parties to follow their parenting plan and/or custody order as closely as possible to ensure a level of consistency and stability that is in the best interest of the child(ren). Families should work together to ensure the best interest of the child(ren) while also following the advice of their healthcare provider(s).
If you are experiencing any issues with the denial of parenting time, difficulty with exchanges, the need for supervised visitation, or interpreting your Child Custody Order, please contact us today. We are highly trained and skilled in advocating for you during this time, whether it is in or out of a courtroom.
