How does the Ohio Director’s Stay at Home Order on March 22, 2020 impact custody agreements and parenting time?

| Mar 23, 2020 | Child Custody, Pandemic, Parenting Time

Section 14(e) of the Order states that “[t]ravel required by law enforcement or court order, including to transport children pursuant to a custody agreement” is Essential Travel and permitted during this time. The custody agreement need not specifically address times of National Emergency or Global Pandemic to fall within this provision.

The Domestic Relations attorneys at Zashin & Rich believe that parents should continue to follow their parenting time schedules during this Stay at Home Order and should further exercise additional patience and common-sense with one another. Remember, your children are experiencing an unprecedented moment in time—it is on you as parents to help ensure they are as insulated from the situation as possible.
