COVID-19's Impact on Family Law and Child Safety, Custody, and Visitation Rights (VIDEO)

March marks the two-year anniversary of COVID-19 in New York State, which has significantly impacted all aspects of family law, especially those related to child safety, custody, and visitation.

In this week's episode of his Family Matters vlog, partner Joseph Trotti, head of Vishnick McGovern Milizio LLP’s Matrimonial and Family Law Practice and founding partner of the VMM Family InstituteSM, explains whether divorce rates have really spiked during the pandemic like the press claims, how new court protocols can actually prove beneficial to litigants, whether COVID-19 concerns can justify limiting a parent's access to the child, and how the courts have ruled in cases of disagreement on vaccination between divorced parents.
