    All in the Family: COVID-19 Impact on Cross-Border Marriage, Divorce and Custody

    11 AM EDT

    The COVID-19 crisis has impacted family life in many ways. As the pandemic and its associated restrictions have remained largely in place, divorces appear to be on the rise, abusive relationships have increased, child custody battles have intensified, the separation between spouses due to stay at home orders has wreaked havoc on cross-border couples and children visitation rights, and immigration restrictions have prevented spouses from getting married or staying together.
