With stay-at-home orders in place, children of divorce can be put in difficult situations. 

While court-enforced custody orders mandate a certain splitting of time between households, there’s a variety of other factors at play right now that might mean you’ve decided to negotiate an alternate arrangement. We sit down with a family law attorney to discuss what the law does and doesn’t say about custody at this time. 

Plus, we want to hear from you about how you’re negotiating parenting if you are not living with your child’s other parent. Have you decided to keep your child in one home? Are you traveling and splitting your children’s time between homes? What health and safety variables are going into your decision making and was it difficult to come to that agreement? Call us at 866-893-5722.

Peter M. Walzer, family law attorney in Woodland Hills
