Why Won’t the Court Weigh in On Disputes My Co-Parent And I Have About Being Safe During The COVID-19 Pandemic?

Dear Attorneys,

Why won’t the court weigh in on disputes my co-parent and I have about being safe during the COVID-19 pandemic? I feel like we are running in circles, and I worry for the safety of my child.

Sincerely,

Quarantined

 

Dear Quarantined,

We know it may feel as thought the court is not willing to weigh in your disputes, and that can be very frustrating. However, if the appropriate motions are filed, or if a request for a status conference is made, the court will generally put your matter on the (virtual) calendar. It may seem like the waiting period is longer than usual to get into court, and that is probably true due to the backlog of cases that were postponed from the beginning of the health crisis.

That being said, it is important now more than ever to try to work together with your co-parent. Communication is key, and it is often the best option if both co-parents can try to work together amicably to reach a resolution.  When in doubt, consider referring to the CDC Guidelines and/or State or local mandates.

Not everyone has the type of co-parenting relationship that will allow them the luxury of resolving disputes on their own. If you are worried about waiting for the courts, a mediator may be the right option for you. You could also retain your own attorney to represent your interests, and they can refer you to other professionals such as co-parenting counselors.
