Lockdown 2 is well underway and understandably, for some parents, this has caused some confusion. To clear things up, here are 6 need to knows for parents, whether you're a new parent or co-parenting during the pandemic:
Lockdown may be confusing, and each lockdown and area of restriction appears to be different but for the purpose of the next few weeks, perhaps this may be helpful.
Remember, child contact should be carried out in a safe way, there are a number of temporary ways in which contact can still take place without putting anyone at risk. Read our co-parenting during the crisis article here for some advice.
Contact may not continue as normal only if it is necessary for the child to self-isolate if they are showing symptoms. If a child is unable to travel between parents, video calls are a great way to maintain contact during this period of time.
It is important that parents work together to accommodate childcare during this second lockdown with minimal disruption to the children. If you are unable to come to an agreement, a solicitor can assist you in coming to an agreement.
Our experienced Family Solicitors are on hand to assist and provide further advice if required.
