Family Law is under pressure during the COVID pandemic


They’ve been dubbed the “COVID Cohort”. They are the high school grads, the class of 2020, who had fully intended to attend the college or university of their choice in September. But the pandemic upset those plans as it has done in almost aspect of our lives and livelihoods.   Post-secondary institutions across the country and around the world are moving from on-campus to online learning. It’s a move that makes sense from a public health perspective but it’s not what students signed up for; so many are reconsidering whether they’ll attend, many saying they’ll opt for a gap year – preferring to have the full campus experience rather than a virtual gathering.   Anna-Marie Musson from Musson Law says, the COVID Cohort is creating a whole new set of unexpected challenges and pressures for couples and families trying to navigate Family Law in this country.
