The worldwide pandemic has made everyone fearful of exposing ourselves and our children to unnecessary risk. While it may seem appropriate to change parenting time and visitation schedules
if your ex has been careful or fails to take necessary precautions, the Courts do not want parents making those decisions unilaterally. In other words, you need to maintain the same parenting time schedule you have always had even during the pandemic.
If you believe that the health and safety of you or are children are being compromised, you need to file a motion for modification with the Court and present evidence as to why you have such concerns. Interfering, delaying or putting conditions on parenting time may subject you to contempt of court charges and possible sanctions.
In those instances where a family member has special health conditions and you are fearful of risk taking behaviors, consult with legal counsel to discuss your best options. Our experienced Georgia family law attorneys are happy to confer with you to determine your best course of action.
