Repairing The Broken Heart

Life After Trauma

By Mira Cassidy

On April 18, 2020, President Donald Trump announced that the country is ready to reopen. Since then, Texas and Georgia have implemented this change. While states like Michigan, the 10th largest and one with a high rate of coronavirus, remain closed. Why? Michigan has joined forces with other Midwest states to come up with an effective strategy. Since this horror began there has been over 900,000 confirmed cases in the US and many children are suffering the most as their parents fight for custody and co-parenting time.

Though many law offices are closed or working remotely, family law attorneys have been slammed with this new surge of cases. Parents are filing judgement for full custody because another parent has tested positive for corona or works around corona patients. One such judgment was granted in the case of Miami ER physician, Dr. Theresa Greene. On April 13th she appeared on CNN to share he custody turmoil over her four-year-old daughter. A Miami judge ruled that custody should be taken away from Dr. Greene because she encounters the virus daily. This ruling caused an outrage in the city and the judge overturned his decision. However, what about individuals that cannot obtain attorneys or national media attention? What resources do they have?

This is a tough problem for legal professionals because each party generally presents with valid claims. What about the mother who does not want her child exposed to the virus because her ex is currently a first responder? What can she do?

For individuals who have low income, a good place to start is Legal Aid. Every state has a Legal Aid office that is established to help those with low income acquire non-criminal legal assistance. Online resources like LawHelp.org or Probono.net can be useful tools also. Another tactic is to perform and online search for lawyers that offer a free consultation. They can explain specific information per your situation and may provide further resources as well. Finally, try reaching out to the Employee Assistance Program and your place of work. Many times, EAP offers not only legal services but mental health resources. We are living in incredibly stressful times and it is even more important to make sure that you are healthy mentally when co-parenting disagreements arise.

Mira Cassidyhttp://Master!2345
Mira Cassidy is an Indianapolis author, journalist, and motivational speaker who from a young age found peace and serenity in writing. A love for the art form blossomed in 2015 when she went back to complete her degree after an eleven-year hiatus. There she took additional English and creative writing courses. During those semesters the depth of her creativity was unlocked, and she produced some of her first short stories and additional poems. As a teen she received the opportunity to continue her studies in Telecommunications via the local Youth Video Institute where she developed a foundation in video production, directing, editing, and journalism. This experience allowed her to interview and meet many individuals from different walks of life including a very young Nick Cannon, David Hollister, and Suzanne Taylor. Today, Mira is a very busy and devoted mother of three. She uses her voice to raise awareness to the pain and suffering caused by domestic violence, adverse childhood experiences, and destructive cycles. Also, she advocates for more funding and focus to be brought into area schools to service children who are exceptional learners.
