Tracey Coates and Carlos Lastra Provided Commentary in Article titled “Pandemic wreaks havoc on divorce, custody and family law cases”

Tracey Coates and Carlos Lastra provided commentary in an article written by Samantha J. SuBin titled: "Pandemic wreaks havoc on divorce, custody and family law cases," which was published in the June 2020 edition of The Maryland Daily Record. 

“You need to at least make the effort,” Coates said. “Have this open communication, be transparent, come to some mutual agreement, because if not, when courts reopen it’s going to come around to bite people.”

Both Coates and Lastra have continued receiving calls from clients looking for clarity on previous custody and court agreements, while stay-at- home orders have exacerbated some already crumbling marriages.
“Parents have to make decisions in real time,” Lastra said. “The law and science have to catch up.”
