As we all know, on March 30, 2020 the Governor of Virginia issued a statewide Temporary Stay at Home Order due to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19). The order directs all Virginians to stay home except in extremely limited circumstances.
One of those circumstances is for the purpose of traveling required by court order or to facilitate child custody, visitation, or child care. We understand that stress and anxiety levels are increased due to the COVID19 pandemic, however, we urge our clients not to let that translate into interference and/or withholding of custody or visitation. If you believe that you may have been exposed to COVID-19 or have concerns that the other parent has, please feel free to reach out to us, we can help you in creating an arrangement or temporary modification of your current schedule to address that scenario.
We are committed to being here with you and will work through the COVID-19 crisis and any others that come our way. We will continue to guide and navigate things the best way we know how. We have not and will not be shutting down. If you have questions regarding how this Order or any other issue specifically impacts your case, please contact your individual attorney for more detailed information. We are continuing to take on new clients. If you would like to talk to one of us, please contact our office at (703) 222-333.
