Parenting time and support issues in the era of COVID-19

On Behalf of | Mar 25, 2020 | Family Law |

COVID-19: Parenting exchanges

On March 22, 2020, Dr. Amy Acton, director of the Ohio Department of Health, ordered that effective 11:50 p.m. on March 23, 2020, all persons are to stay at home or place of residence, unless they fall into one of the listed exceptions.

For parents operating under a parenting order, important questions come to mind: Is travel for parenting exchanges permitted? Does this fall into an exception? The answer to both questions is YES!

Travel required by law enforcement or court order, including to transport children pursuant to a custody agreement is considered Essential Travel and one of the exceptions to the “Stay at Home” order.

It is important for children to feel a sense of normalcy and to maintain a consistent schedule, as much as that can be accomplished now.
