Shelter in Place and Parenting Time: You must follow the parenting agreement that is in place. The Governor’s Executive order Paragraph 14 e allows for travel to transport children for parenting time.
Quarantine and Social Distancing: Quarantine and social distancing will take a toll on some relationships. During this time, please be kind, do not incite your partner, do not allow yourself to become angry. Please recognize that law enforcement will be tackling a lot and a trip to your home will not be a good use of their resources. The ability to get into court with an attorney will be limited although available if absolutely necessary.
When tempers start to flare and emotions start to run high, please conduct yourself with your children in mind. Do not do or say anything that you would not want them to do or say to you or to their partner later in life.
You can tell your partner what you think after the quarantine, out of the presence of children, when you are not limited in your living options. Today, this week, next week, is the time to walk to another room.
This is good time to avoid alcohol and other things that increase the likelihood of arguments.
If you need to speak to someone for legal advice or to help guide you in your next step, a call to my office will be forwarded to me whether I am home or at the office.
