Pandemic may necessitate changes in your child custody order

| Mar 20, 2020 | Child Custody |

Many divorced Atlanta parents are scrambling for child care options for their kids who are now out of school indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic. Some may have jobs that allow them to telecommute from home and keep a watchful eye on the kids.

But many others — like the heroic health care workers and first responders — are required to show up every day ready to work. If you fall into the latter category, you may be about at your wit’s end trying to arrange adequate supervision for the kids during this world-wide crisis.

Now might be a good time to negotiate with the children’s other parent and attempt to devise a workable custody schedule for the children during these fraught times. Even though you may not share a good relationship with your ex, in times of crisis, your child’s other parent may be the best backup that you have.

Since it is never a good idea to be noncompliant with the parenting plan or custody agreement that you have in place, we can work with you to modify your custody arrangement so that it aligns with the present circumstances. If your children’s other parent agrees to sign off on any changes, we can then file the modification with the family law court.

In these uncertain times, you definitely don’t want to leave the care and custody of your children up in the air. We can help you establish a firm legal ground for making the necessary changes in your custody agreement to ensure that your children’s needs will continue to be met with the least possible disruption to their routines.
