School Closures and Child Arrangements during COVID-19

chairs classroom college desks  e

During this uncertain time, concerns that many parents have regarding the arrangements for the children are being exacerbated due to schools now being closed.

For some parents, they are not able to work from home and this is presenting them with difficulties regarding the arrangements for their children. If you are unable to work from home then consideration will have to be given to changing the arrangements for the children, especially if one parent is able to work from home. This is especially true if one parent is a key worker and needs to ensure that they are able to work during the ongoing health crisis.

In the circumstances, if, due to the ongoing the COVID-19 situation, there are practical issues in respect of the arrangements for children, then we can advise separated parents regarding any temporary changes to any current arrangements. If, for reasons of work or self-isolation, the children have to spend more time with the other parent, and this is outside the normal routine, we do not believe that such changes would merit a shift in the status quo in respect of long-term arrangements.

If you want any further information on how best to deal with the arrangements for your children at this time or on how to make changes to existing Child Arrangement Orders please do not hesitate to contact us.
