Q. Ex wife is not allowing daughter to visit this summer, claiming too risky b/c of COVID?
A: Hello, I'm sorry you are having this issue. It is heartbreaking when you feel a lack of control over when you can see your child. The California courts are taking the pandemic very seriously. However, generally speaking, the courts are not viewing Covid-19 as a reason to pause visitation exchanges. If you feel that Mother's actions are not within your child's best interests, you have the option of filing a request for an emergency hearing on the matter with the court. I wish you lots of luck and hope you get to see your daughter soon.
