How is Our Possession Schedule Affected by a “Shelter in Place” Lockdown?

Aimee Pingenot Key | April 22, 2020

While there is no statewide “shelter in place” directive at this time, different counties are promulgating individual responses to this ongoing crisis. Several large counties have issued “shelter in place” orders as of the time of publication, including Harris, Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, Hunt, and Bexar Counties. The Texas Supreme Court issued guidance on March 24, 2020, in the Seventh Emergency Order Regarding the COVID-19 State of Disaster, ordering that parents must follow their possession and access schedule and is not affected by any shelter in place order. This applies to the entire state and clarifies that unless otherwise agreed, a parent must follow the court ordered possession schedule regardless of his or her individual county’s order.
