How Will Coronavirus Affect Family Law?
The ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic could impact multiple aspects of family law:
- Child support. A record 3.3 million Americans filed for unemployment last week due to job losses from the COVID-19 pandemic. For reference, the previous record of unemployment cases filed in one week was 695,000, filed in 1982. COVID-19 has hugely impacted industries across the world, instigating mass job losses. An unintended consequences is that many parents will no longer be unable to afford their previously arranged child support payments.
- Spousal support. Similar to child support, many divorcees may find themselves unable to afford previously arranged spousal support arrangements due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Child custody. Schools (universities and boarding schools included) across the nation are shutting their doors, and so are childcare facilities. As a result, children who would usually be at school now must reside at home. Many parents who are currently working from home or essential workers still going to work may find their previous child custody arrangement is now untenable.
- Court dates and appearances. Many courts are closing their doors during the COVID-19 pandemic, forcing individuals to reschedule their court dates or conduct court via video conferencing.
- And more. These are just a few of the ways the COVID-19 pandemic is currently affecting family law cases. As the pandemic progresses, there will undoubtedly be more items to add to this list.
