With a sponsor offering to spend a little time with the audience to help with some pretty savvy legal advice, you say "absolutely" and get the camera rolling! Shon Cook is an Attorney practicing in Whitehall and she's in the thick of it like we all are and offering some pretty sage advice for people in a time when we're all kind of focused on anything but what the legal system is doing. Some adaptations have been made, but legal processes continue and people need the help of judges, lawyers, mediators, arbitrators and more.
Last week, Shon spent some time explaining child support in the time of COVID. There was a LOT of information about what's happening with everything going on. Especially when it comes to income adjustments due to job loss or furlough and how the courts are handling things.

This week, we're on to parenting time. For some, it's already a struggle. For others, it's a matter of sharing their child between their respective residences and there's not much more to it. For those who do have a hard time, the troubles run deep. Right down to what socks the kid is wearing at who's house. Add in the invisible threat of COVID-19 and you can see in no short order that things can get heated, really quick making an already tense situation even harder on everyone, especially the child. The courts are clear on parenting time with few exceptions. Shon shares the knowledge she's got and explains the in's and out's of parenting time on Saturday's With Shon, on The Muskegon Channel.
