Coronavirus and parenting. Movements to reach children, separated parents.

In these difficult days due to the Coronavirus emergency, many divorced and separated customers are calling us to understand how to see their children, how to bring them back to the other parent and whether it is possible to derogate from the provisions of the Court.

The Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 9 March 2020 has in fact extended to the entire Italian territory what has already been foreseen for the CD red zone established in some provinces by the provision of 8 March 2020.

This provision requires "to avoid any movement of natural persons entering and leaving the territories referred to in this article, as well as within the same territories, except for movements motivated by proven work needs or situations of necessity or movements for reasons of health. Return to your home, home or residence is allowed. "

The most frequent question asked by separated parents is whether transfers to take and bring back children can be considered a necessity and therefore lawful.

Teenagers. Educate and grow without fear

A New Way to Leave Peacefully

In Collaborative Practice the interaction between the parts is fundamental and, at times, other lawyers are involved, besides lawyers: psychologists and couple therapists.

At the center of the question is the well-being of the children, the commitment of the parents to collaborate with each other, to never denigrate the former partner and to request, if necessary, the help of a child specialist or a family relations facilitator .

Each topic is explained through the narration of real cases and situations that actually happened.


Interview with the lawyer Armando Cecatiello in the Radio Lombardia studios. Separation, divorce and heritage protection.

Milan, 18 October 2019.

  • Friends of Radio Lombardia we are in the company of the lawyer Armando Cecatiello.
  • Good evening!
  • It is a pleasure to have you here on Live Social to talk about protecting family assets. […] How is it possible to separate while protecting one's assets at the same time?
  • First of all, it is necessary to contact a good, specialized marriage lawyer, in the sense that in any case, even if specialization is not expressly provided for in Italy, it is necessary to find someone competent who deals with issues of this type daily; then we need to see ourselves not as “ex”, and therefore enemies, but we should see ourselves as allies, as partners; when you get married, people usually take some time […].
  • […] Among the problems of separations connected to the protection of assets is the maintenance allowance, which is calculated in what way?
  • It is necessary to verify what is the standard of living of the spouses during the marriage and especially that of the children, because then we talk about the maintenance of the children and the weaker spouse. Here too, you need to be very careful: if I have to defend the weaker spouse [,,,].
