Domestic Relations Custody Orders for Visitation during Executive Shelter in Place

Please be aware that despite the shelter in place orders, Georgia courts have clarified that child custody and visitation orders are supposed to continue as usual, and transportation between households is considered an essential service.  Accordingly, if someone refuses to comply with a child custody and visitation order during the COVID-19 crisis, they can be held in contempt of an existing order.  Please contact the family law team at Bodker, Ramsey, Andrews, Winograd & Wildstein if you have any questions about your particular situation.
