Kersh Law Firm Update II-COVID-19

Published March 23, 2020 by Shane Kersh


To all our current and past clients,

I want to take a minute to give you another update during these trying times. The Kersh Law Firm will be open and operating at full staff until we are told otherwise. The Kersh Law Firm is fully invested in resources that will allow all of us to work from home without missing a beat if it comes to that. Either way, we do not plan to shutdown our offices or stop working for our clients.

You have my sincere promise that we will not let your case fall through the cracks. We will not miss dates or let any statutory deadlines run. We are committed to making sure you and your family are taken care of during this unprecedented time.

For all of you that are unfortunately experiencing time missed with your children because the other parent has refused to return them, or are otherwise refusing to follow the existing orders, please take a step back and take a breath…I understand your frustration…even when that frustration turns to anger.

If the situation is dire, meaning the other parent has refused to return the children for any reason, or is secreting the child …you do have a remedy. We can file a writ of habeas corpus. It is my understanding that the court will hear a writ as it is classified as an emergency (or essential) hearing. If the writ is granted, the court will order that the child be immediately returned.

If the situation is something you believe is not as serious, we can file an enforcement for violation of the courts order. Of course, this would be done after the fact. An enforcement hearing is like a mini trial. If the offending party is found in contempt, he or she can be sanctioned or even put in jail for the violation.


Either way, I promise we will deal with the situation aggressively and swiftly.

Having said that, I’m asking that all of you PLEASE follow the current order as they are written. DO NOT put yourself in a position that you are the one having to defend an enforcement. Please use common sense and make good parenting decisions.

We are here for you, so please don’t hesitate to call. I hope all of you stay safe and we will get through this together.

Best regards,

Shane Kersh
