COVID-19: Virtual Learning & Child Custody

COVID-19: Virtual Learning & Child Custody

Although the situation may change in the next few months, most students have returned to school this fall but in a different way than we hoped. The use of remote learning technology for the new school year may cause unforeseen problems especially for parents who share custody.

Even during the best of times, transferring custody between parents requires coordination, but now there are additional considerations about whether each parent has the appropriate devices and tech available to ensure the child can properly attend school. Many school districts in North Carolina have deployed “smart buses” to accommodate high need neighborhoods where access to wifi may be limited.

Now is the perfect time to review your existing custody arrangement and speak to a family law attorney about how to plan for unexpected hiccups in the coming months. Modifications may be needed for parents whose work schedules could interfere with a homeschooling environment and completion of assignments.

If you have questions about navigating the current school year under the new circumstances, give us a call to speak with our qualified family law attorneys.
