On March 29, 2020, Governor John Carney issued a Seventh Modification to the COVID-19 State of Emergency Declaration. The modification directs all out-of-state travelers to Delaware to self-quarantine for 14 days.
In response, the Delaware Family Court issued the following guidance with regard to custody and visitation orders.
- All existing Delaware Family Court orders remain in full force and effect.
- All travel for the purposes of complying with a Family Court order is deemed essential and excluded from the self-quarantine requirement.
We recommend all families traveling interstate in accordance with a Family Court order to travel with a copy of the order to present to authorities if needed.
We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation in Delaware and will provide updates. Click here for information from the Family Court or contact us at any time with your questions or concerns.
