Francis Financial President and CEO Stacy Francis was recently quoted in a New York Law Journal article titled Family Court and Matrimonial Part Judges Should Brace Themselves To Decide the Vaccine Debate Amongst Parents. The January 2021 piece outlines a brief history of vaccine legislation and how the COVID-19 vaccine is expected to create new disputes among divorcing parents.
Francis shares her expertise on how COVID-19 has affected her financial planning clients. “Many divorcing couples are having to reign in their spending due to COVID-induced unemployment and underemployment,” she says. “The financial ramifications of the pandemic are wreaking havoc on the finances of these divorcing couples creating a pressure cooker situation”.
In addition to the financial pressures related to COVID-19, the article goes on to explore issues that are likely to arise between divorcing couples when a vaccine is made available for children under the age of 16, including common worries many parents have about the safety and long term side effects of a vaccine for their children, and what type of conflict is expected in divorcing couples if the vaccine is made mandatory for children to attend school.
