It has become common in my office to see fathers threatening to take their children’s mothers to court for “not following the Covid restrictions.” This is another way to control you, the mother.
Recently, I had a dispute Covid custody dispute go to court. Father was angry that mom was driving to Sacramento with the parties daughter to visit grandmother, the mother’s mother.
Father argued that Sacramento was unsafe due to higher number Covid-19 infections than Marin County.
The judge was not convinced. You, as your child’s mother, are given the benefit of the doubt to do what is in the best interests of your child during Covid. Do not let the father scare you into believing he knows what is right during Covid.
