COVID-19 Family Law Resources

The Law Office of Warren Shiell extends its deepest sympathies to everyone affected by the
COVID crisis particularly those in the medical professions and other essential workers. While
our mission to help families in times of crisis has not changed, the practice of family law has
changed for the time being. Family law courts are closed for most family law cases. To protect
our current clients, potential new clients and staff, we are offering over the phone consultations
as well as Zoom video conferences. The practice of family law is constantly evolving in
response to the crisis and it is important to stay current with local and State orders. We have
found the following family law resources to be particularly helpful.

COVID-19 and Child Custody
Parents who are sharing custody of their children should treat this crisis as an opportunity to co-
parent and work together to do what is in their children’s best interests and safe for their
families, rather than taking advantage of the other parent. Here are four guidelines for parents
sharing custody during the crisis.

The Superior Court of California County of Los Angeles (LASC)

The LASC News Center has a dedicated COVID-19 News and Resource Center which
includes local and Statewide judicial orders affecting the practice of family law in Los Angeles.

The Association of Family and Conciliation Courts (AFCC)

The premier interdisciplinary and international association of professionals dedicated to the
resolution of family conflict.  AFCC members are the leading practitioners, researchers,
teachers and policymakers in the family court arena. Their web site contains an excellent
COVID-19 Recourses and Information area.

Family Law Section of the Los Angeles County Bar

LACBA has made available several free webinars that address the effect of the pandemic on
family law.
