A Note from the Rittgers & Rittgers Domestic Relations team on the custody implications of Ohio's Extended Spring Break:

Effective March 16, 2020, Governor DeWine has implemented an "extended Spring Break" for all K-12 public and private schools. As of now, this announcement does not include daycares or in-home childcare. This announcement has left many people wondering how the school closures affect their existing custody orders. In most cases, if you have an existing custody order or shared parenting plan, there is an allocation of the Spring Break vacation per your child's school calendar. At Rittgers, as a team, our office is monitoring how the courts are interpreting custody orders in light of the Governor's statement. However, as of now, our recommendation to all parents is to allow exercise of the Spring Break for the previously planned one-week period then return to your regular parenting schedule. Obviously, with schools closed and many people being encouraged to work from home, we encourage flexibility and understanding of your co-parent's situation. This recommendation may change depending on facts specific to your situation or your parenting plan. If you have questions about your specific situation, please don't hesitate to reach out to us to set up a consult with one of our team.
