Many parents are concerned about how COVID-19 affects their parenting time schedule and rights under Shared Parenting Plans. The good news is that your plan likely contains language that will help you navigate this difficult time – work together and communicate openly. Unless there is a clear reason for doing so, we do not believe courts will look favorably upon any parent’s unilateral refusal to abide by a previous order. NBC 4 in Columbus recently ran a story on this exact same topic.
