We are all facing uncertain times due to the corona virus. It has affected everyone and changed the way we go about our day to day lives. One of the biggest changes is that kids aren't going to school and are home all day. I've received several questions about how school changes affect custody possession schedules.
The Collin County District Courts have addressed some of this uncertainty by issuing an "Emergency Standing Order Regarding Possession Schedule During School Closures." These emergency orders state "the original published school schedule shall control in all instances." So parents should continue drop off and pick up schedules according to the regular school district calendars that were in place prior to COVID-19. Additionally the orders state that if the school closures continue into the summer, the regular summer schedule applies including schedules for Extended Summer Possession.
If you have any questions about custody schedules, we are still offering phone and video consultations. You can contact us at 972-542-6820 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
