The House of Commons has published a briefing paper providing information in response to some key questions regarding the impact of the Coronavirus outbreak on separated families, maintenance arrangements and access to children.

 

The paper addresses:

  • Can children move between the homes of separated parents?
  • How should parents comply with a court-orders for contact?
  • How are child maintenance payments impacted?
  • Can I visit my child in care/residential home?
  • My child contact centre is closed: What alternatives are being made?
  • Where can I go for help and advice?

This is a fast-moving issue and the briefing should be read as correct at the time of publication.

You can read the paper here.
