COVID-19 Impact on Existing Family Obligations

By Snyder Sarno D'Aniello Maceri & da Costa LLC on April 03, 2020


THE IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON EXISTING FAMILY OBLIGATIONS (I.E., FINANCIAL AND PARENTING TIME)

During the COVID-19 pandemic, our family law attorneys are fielding hundreds of questions from our clients regarding what they can and cannot do, and what they should and should not do, with their existing obligations, including financial obligations such as alimony, child support and equitable distribution, and parenting time obligations. Our universal, and commonsense, response is as follows: “this is a problem that we are dealing with so be reasonable, be flexible, and remember that this will eventually end (so we hope)”.

However, reasonableness and flexibility do not always prevail. In that case, family courts remain “open” for business, although “open” does not mean what it did a few months ago. Like all of us, courts are adjusting to this new, but temporary, normal by conducting most business remotely (e.g., by video or phone). 

You can trust the skilled family law attorneys at Snyder Sarno D’Aniello Maceri & da Costa LLC to protect your interests. Just last week fourteen of our attorneys were recognized by Thomson Reuters’ New Jersey Super Lawyers and Thomson Reuters' Rising Stars lists,* four of which were further included on Thomson Reuters’ New Jersey Super Lawyers Top 100 list.** 

Although in-person consultations are not possible at this time, our attorneys remain available to answer all of your questions by video, phone, or email. Please give us a call at (973) 274-5200 or visit our website at www.snydersarno.com.
