- Nobody wants to imagine catching the virus, however, you must plan for the worst. If you or your former spouse contract the virus, where will you be quarantined? Where will your children stay? These are all key aspects of a comprehensive plan that you must discuss.
- From here, you and your former spouse should create a working list of places where you may not take your child during the outbreak. For example, any town or area that is known to have a large amount of COVID-19 cases should be off-limits.
- Next, ensure you and your former spouse are receiving up-to-date information from the CDC, World Health Organization, and other reputable sources on the virus.
- Finally, if you and your spouse cannot initially agree on a plan, reach out to one of our experienced New Jersey mediators who can act as an unbiased third party and help you craft a temporary parenting time plan that works for you, your former spouse, and, most importantly, your children.
