COVID19 & Parenting Rights

Over the past few months, the number of #COVID19 cases amongst children has increased significantly and #children under age 12 remain ineligible to receive the vaccine.

A recent decision out of Chicago stripped a parent of all ongoing #parenting rights over her 11-year old son due to the fact she was #unvaccinated. The other parent had already been #vaccinated. Despite the fact that the issue of parenting was not an issue before the Court, Judge James Shapiro directed that the unvaccinated parent’s parenting rights would be reinstated once she received the vaccine. The mother has already filed a petition to appeal.

COVID-19 and the decision to remain unvaccinated continues to be a global and polarizing issue. I anticipate this will be an ongoing issue and that we will see many more #familylaw cases with similar results.
