The Coronavirus and Travelling with ChildrenPublished on: 12 March 2020
With many families getting ready for their Easter breaks, our family law team has seen a sharp increase in calls from worried parents.
In the current climate with the public understandably concerned about the coronavirus, parents need to remember that the decision to travel with children needs to be a joint decision made by all those who share parental responsibility.
We have seen a significant increase in calls from worried parents wanting advice on whether they should travel with their children without the need for updated consent from the other parent.
You should proceed with caution. It is a very difficult position with the WHO advice likely to change daily as the virus spreads.
Anyone concerned should contact our specialist family law team and seek legal advice before travelling.
