Dealing with Virtual Schooling as a Divorced Parent

by francistaylor childcustody Divorce Coaching
For divorced parents, it may have meant a return to traditional custody schedules, but for many, that has likely not been the case.

How Quarantine Has Affected Custody Schedules Legally speaking, parents are still expected to abide by custody plans during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Parents may have modified their custody schedules so that they could minimize the risk of exposing their child to the virus.

Some may have been put in a difficult situation where one parent received more time with a child than the other, often to protect the child from becoming infected with COVID-19.

What if one parent doesn't feel that it is safe? What if they would prefer that the child should continue distance learning, but the other parent does not? Well, in California, that decision is up to who has legal custody.

In some cases, one parent will have physical custody, meaning the child will primarily live with them, while the other parent has legal custody where they get to make decisions about the child's education.

How do parents resolve such an argument? Can the Courts Get Involved? San Diego courts prefer that parents resolve issues without getting a judge involved, oftentimes through mediation, but parents can petition the court to act as a tiebreaker.
