COVID-19 SPARKS SURGE OF CHILD, SPOUSAL SUPPORT CALLS

Larry Schwind headshot, a COVID-19 family law attorney in Rochester, NYSheltering at home is hard enough with a spouse and kids, but for divorced parents it can be a little more complicated.

“I’ve gotten a lot of calls on visitation,” said Larry Schwind, partner and chair of the domestic relations department at Lacy Katzen LLP. “There’s been some degree of anxiety over ‘I’m not seeing my kids.’”

So much so that NBC News recently reported on a number of ex-spouses, including a couple in Buffalo, who had chosen to hunker down together throughout the COVID-19 pandemic so that both parents had time with their children.

“Initially it was a little trickier because people were not as aware of the situation, they were unhappy that their ex-spouse was not letting the kids come over for visitation,” Schwind said of shared custody. “I have the sense that people realize this is globally a big deal and they have to work together because that’s the only way they’re going to get through this.”

The majority of the calls are from individuals who have lost their jobs, been furloughed or who have had to take a pay cut as a result of the pandemic.
