Coronavirus and parenting. How to protect minors.

In the difficult situation that we are all experiencing due to the Covid-19 emergency that completely changed our lifestyle and confronted us with the harsh reality of the end of life, the situation of parents separated, divorced and in any case divided and of their children is extremely difficult. With the succession of Decrees and Ordinances, parents and children are increasingly disoriented and in the case of highly conflicting families the risk that the already precarious balance is compromised is the harsh reality. Paradoxically, the situation is even more difficult when the children are pre-adolescents or teenagers.

[Go on…]

Coronavirus, children can finally go out.

These have been difficult days for families, especially those with young children forced to stay at home and not be able to carry out any activity outside the home,

While the data seem to be moving towards improvement and someone is starting to think about the end of the quarantine, the Ministry seems to have listened to the requests of parents, psychologists and pedagogists in the interest of minors. It is thus allowed to walk with your minor children: however, you must be careful: it is not allowed to move with the whole family and it is necessary to stay near your home.

The study was founded by Avv. Armando Cecatiello from a twenty-year experience in the right of family and people.

Avv. Armando Cecatiello

The experience as a divorce lawyer allows him to conduct in the best way the various phases of separation and divorce in judicial or out-of-court matters.

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.

[Go on…]

A New Way to Leave Peacefully

In the 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 at Live Social to talk about protecting family assets. [...] How is it possible to separate while protecting one's assets?
  • First of all, it is necessary to contact a good matrimonial lawyer, specialized, in the sense that in any case, even if specialization is not explicitly foreseen in Italy, it is necessary to find someone competent who deals with such matters on a daily basis; 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 normally take a little time [...].
  • [...] Among the problems of the separations connected then to the protection of the assets there 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 [,,,].
