COVID-19 Continues to Affect Family Law

COVID-19 has already made life harder for families but according to a Sun-Sentinel article, it’s also affecting family law. The article mentions a mother who was not allowed to see her son due to her alleged refusal to wear a mask. The woman’s son has asthma which increases his risk of contracting the illness.

According to the article, the woman has bragged about her stance as an “anti-mask person” on social media. While the decision may be controversial, it reinforces how the pandemic is now another factor that needs to be taken into consideration along with issues such as an acrimonious divorce, single parenting, or parents that may still owe child support.

COVID-19 first made its way into Florida family law when a doctor working with coronavirus patients in the emergency room had her custody rights over her daughter removed. The ruling was swiftly reversed by an appeals court, and the parents of the girl finally settled their custody dispute.
