COVID-19 Custody and Child Support Q&A

Posted by Anna Chludzinski | Apr 02, 2020 | 0 Comments

If my ex is denying me court ordered visitation / custody time because of COVID-19 can I get an emergency hearing with the court? The short answer is no. Almost every court has stopped hearing anything but emergency matters. A court is unlikely to hear it unless you have evidence that the children are in physical danger. If my ex is saying that he/she needs to suspend child support payments because of COVID-19 job loss, what are my options? The short answer is that child support is a court order, and the other parent is obligated to pay it.
