Co-parenting in the coronavirus pandemic: A family law scholar’s advice

When the world is practicing social distancing, divorced or separated parents are wondering how they will either see or get their child back. Lawyers around the country are receiving calls from worried parents on how or when their child will be returned to them. Some are trying to keep their child from the other parent, which violates the shared custody agreement.

With family courts closed, separated or divorced parents will have to make up the arrangement’s day by day. It is important for both parents to find common ground. This will eliminate unnecessary arguing and bickering. Make it easy for not only the parents, but for the child who is already experiencing a lot as well. Create a routine and stick with it until this pandemic ends.
