CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Covid-19 has had a tremendous impact on our society since it arrived with a vengeance in Coral Springs and across Florida in March 2020.
Our lives changed almost overnight, and those changes continued to affect local families. Custody battles during this pandemic started almost immediately.
A doctor was reported on site whose husband had filed an urgency petition with the court to suspend the mother’s time sharing because of “concerns that the mother may be exposed to COVID-19 and thereby endanger the children”. The presiding judge initially granted this request without a hearing, but this decision was overturned on appeal only a few weeks later.

Similar disputes have taken place in courts across Florida since the beginning of the pandemic.
Parents didn’t want to send their children between homes, even in Coral Springs and Broward Counties. Parents didn’t want to send their children to parents who lived a flight away. Parents quarreled over COVID-19 measures, with parents not being on the same side as they observed quarantine measures.
Parents also disagreed about online or in-person schooling when schools reopened in South Florida last fall. And the arguments go on.
There is no COVID-19 exemption for court orders. Parental plans are court orders, and court orders should always be followed. COVID-19 is not seen as a good excuse for violating your parental plan regulations.
