One of the hardest issues for many people following their divorce are the challenges of schooling and co-parenting during the COVID-19 pandemic. How do you make the choice of whether to send your child(ren) back to school or keep them at home for remote learning? How do you balance work, child care, home schooling and supervision as a co-parent?
Most schools have gone to remote learning at some point in this process. We have been through a wave of schools reopening, only to return to remote learning when a local outbreak occurs. The impact of COVID-19 on working parents cannot be overstated. Child custody and parenting time orders can be challenging enough in ordinary times. How are you supposed to handle the ever-changing environment of schooling and co-parenting during the COVID-19 pandemic?
The Certified Family Law Specialists at Burke & Domercq have helped many former and new clients to navigate through these challenges. In some cases, a simple negotiation and an agreed upon modification can help co-parents to manage the situation at hand. Mediation is another cost-effective and timely tool for working through the challenges of schooling and co-parenting during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Courts were closed for quite some time earlier this year and case loads are backlogged. There is talk of closing the Family Courts again in the near future. Working collaboratively with the guidance of our experienced attorneys and a proven mediator can help most parents develop a workable solution without the need to wait on the Court.
Post decree modifications to existing child custody and parenting time orders can be submitted to the Court for prompt approval upon completion of the process.
