Here is the second of our YouTube videos, this time with Phillips director Hayley Eachus, who heads our Family Law team, talking about child contact issues for separated parents during the Coronavirus lockdown.
Hayley says that if you are a separated parent the lockdown does not prevent you from seeing your children.
Taking your children to see the other parent and picking them up is currently deemed as essential travel, if this can be done safely.
If you cannot allow any direct contact because of health concerns based on public health guidance, such as when someone in your household is showing symptoms of COVID-19, then you should consider allowing the other parent to speak to your child or children via telephone, FaceTime, or Zoom.
Should you wish to discuss child contact or family law related issues arising out of the Coronavirus pandemic, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with Hayley on 01256 854633 or by emailing [email protected]
During these difficult times our Town Gate office in Basingstoke is temporarily closed to visitors unless by prior appointment when meeting in person is essential. However, thanks to our lawyers being able to work remotely, Phillips remains fully open for business and can discuss family law issues or any other legal matters by telephone and video conference.
