Fort Lauderdale, FL asked in Family Law for Florida

Q: If me and my husband are only seperated, can i stop him from seeing our child because he is not vaccinated?

I fear for my 14 month old baby's life, my seperated husband refuses the covid vaccine and if he gets covid, he's putting my baby's life at risk. Can i stop him from seeing my baby unless he gets the vaccine?

A: If you disagree on time-sharing you need to file for divorce and ask for the court to order a parenting plan inclusive of a time-sharing schedule. I have never seen the court limit a parent's contact over not having the vaccine and do not think that is a likely outcome absent an extraordinary circumstance.

A: You say you are only separated meaning there is no parental plan which is associated with dissolution marriage, right?

If so, you will not breach any agreement or disobey court order if you refuse to let him see the baby unless he gets vaccinated.
