A: Yes, The Court Order for parenting time with your minor child is deemed essential travel. Indiana Governor addressed exchanging children in Sec. E number 16 of Indiana’s stay at home order on or about March 20, 2020. This includes travel to other states, Kentucky.

Call an attorney for help obtaining your parenting time if his father refuses to allow you your Ordered time.
